Nelima gothica (Lohmander, 1945)
Rare in Nottinghamshire, with few reliable records. Very similar to a Leiobunum type Harvestman, but obviously smaller and with pale Trochanters, lighter leg colour. The specimen in the photographs is darker than is often depicted in books or on the Internet. Found from Summer, through to late Autumn, when most specimens tend to become darker. Post 2000 records come from Rainworth Heath in 2010 (Williams, H.) and Worksop Priory (Pendleton, T.A. and Pendleton, D.T.).
