Lamprochernes chyzeri (Tömövary, 1882)
Sherwood Forest holds eight species of False Scorpion (Pseudoscorpions), but probably more. There are currently 27 species in the UK and they have traditionally always been an under-studied group, although there has been a recent increase in interest among some of the county's naturalists. We have recorded Lamprochernes chyzeri under bark at Sherwood Forest CP on a couple of occasions, but in good numbers from a manure heap at Church Warsop in March 2020.
