Entelecara erythropus (Westring, 1851) 
Seemingly uncommon across Nottinghamshire, based purely on the records we have been sent, but small Lyniphids such as this are notorously difficult to identify (a specimen is needed) and there remains a lack of greater interest in the county's Arachnid fauna. There is just one Sherwood Forest record and the one below was found in a leaf litter sample taken from Warsop Carrs in early 2020.
