Armadillidium nasatum (Budde-Lund, 1885)
A distinctive Woodlouse which is often recorded from old quarries, garden centres and brownfield sites. Armadillidium nasatum had been well recorded in Leicestershire for a number of years (Daws, J.), before several specimens were found new to Nottinghamshire, under a small bag of sand lying on gravel at the Southwell Garden Centre. It has since turned up at a number of other garden centres and former colliery sites, with an obviously long established population found to be present on the sites of the former Bilsthorpe Colliery and Warsop Main Colliery at Warsop Vale (Pendleton, T.A. and Pendleton , D.T.). There is an attractive red form shown below, making up a small proportion of any population.
