|This is a tiny Woodlouse and unlikely ever
to be noticed unless specifically looked for. Even then,
it may be easily mistaken for a juvenile of a much larger
species. Haplophthalmus danicus is one of three
species of Haplophthalmus found in the UK.
Because they are so small (to as little as 4mm) and are
completely soil-dwelling, there are just two
Nottinghamshire records. The ones illustrated were found
deep inside a pile of rotting bark chippings at Sherwood
Forest CP in early April 2017 and the only previous
county record we can trace from the NBN Atlas, dates from
near Rufford CP in 1961 (Standen, V.). Likely to be more
common than records suggest.
