Haplophthalmus mengii (Zaddach, 1844)
Haplophthalmus mengii is a tiny subterranean Woodlouse, which seems to have been unknown from Nottinghamshire, until we found the specimen photographed at Ransom Wood in August 2017, then more recently from Cliptsone Old Quarter in October of the same year. Almost certainly a good deal more common than the current lack of records would suggest. All specimens have been found underneath partly buried logs or stones.
