Cylisticus convexus (De Geer, 1778)
Only recorded in Nottinghamshire on two occasions. Both records are from two former Colliery sites, with a record from the old Boughton Tip (now known as Ollerton Pit Woods) in August 1986 (Langston, M.R.) and from the former Warsop Main Pit Top in November 2018 (Pendleton, T.A. and Pendleton, D.T.). Almost certainly under-recorded in the county and can roll into a ball like several other species, but the long, pointed uropods and (diagnostically) the antennae remain exposed and drawn over the head.
