Armadillidium nasatum (Budde-Lund, 1885)
Discovered as new to Nottinghamshire in September 2016, when several specimens were found under a small bag of sand lying on gravel at the Southwell Garden Centre. We recently (July 2017) recorded it from the site of the former Bilsthorpe Colliery. Armadillidium nasatum is rather patchily distributed across the UK south of the Humber. Fairly similar to Armadillidium vulgare, A. nasatum is a Pill Woodlouse and surprisingly quick to move when disturbed. It is often recorded from old quarries, garden centres and brownfield sites and has been well recorded in neighbouring Leicestershire for years (Daws, J.) and should eventually turn up at more sites in Nottinghamshire.
