Porcellionides pruinosus (Brandt, 1833)
A common and well distributed Woodlouse over most of the UK. It is without doubt, considerably under-recorded in Nottinghamshire. Despite the scarcity of county records, Porcellionides pruinosus is likely to be encountered within the manure heaps of most Nottinghamshire farms, but it has occurred within the grounds of two sites with no obvious links to manure. Despite the scarity of county records, Porcellionides pruinosus will very likely be encountered within the manure heaps of many Nottinghamshire farms. The individual photographed was found at Tug Bridge Farm near Eakring in December 2015, just a few weeks after one was found at Brackenhurst near Southwell (Heeney, W. and Skinner, M. . Lugg, K. and Lugg, B.).
