Rough Pygmy Woodlouse Trichoniscoides albidus (Budde-Lund, 1880)
A small reddish-brown Woodlouse, similar in appearance to Trichoniscus pusillus and usually found under stones in wet/damp locations. Recent research has discovered that Trichoniscoides albidus was originally found new to Nottinghamshire in 1975, when recorded from West Bridgford (Rundle, A.J.). This was found to precede records from two sites along the River Trent at Farndon near Newark (Whiteley, D.) in January 2016, which at the time were thought to represent the first records for the Nottinghamshire. It was subsequently found in flood debris along the bank of the River Trent at Stoke Bardolph in February 2017 (Pendleton , T.A. and Pendleton, D.T.).
