Pselaphochernes scorpioides (Hermann, 1804)
For some reason this Pseudoscorpion must have been overlooked in Nottinghamshire, rather than being genuinely rare. Pselaphochernes scorpioides is one of the most likely species to turn up in old manure samples, but Nottinghamshire's only records to date have come from a pile of rotting woodchip/bark mulch in Stoke Bardolph Wood, where it was discovered new to Nottinghamshire by Adrian Dutton in May 2020 and has been subsequently recorded from the same site since.
