Silvanus bidentatus (Fabricius, 1792)
Another very small species found under bark and at first glance, visually identical to Silvanus unidentatus. Much closer inspection to separate the two species is needed and the visual differences are still somewhat subtle. In Nottinghamshire, the only records for Silvanus bidentatus, appear to be from Clumber Park and Sherwood Forest CP.
