Platybunus pinetorum (C.L.Koch, 1839)  
Unknown in the UK until first recorded from a Sheffield garden in 2010. It has since been found at Glasgow and Aberdeen in Scotland, Northern Ireland and in the UK at Yorkshire, Northampton and a number of other towns, with an increase in records shown over the past few years and which is probably due to an increased interest in Harvestmen. Found for the first time in Nottinghamshire at Gleadthorpe near Meden Vale in May 2020.
