Trichoniscus provisorius (Racovitza, 1908)
Almost certainly as common and widespread as the visually identical Trichoniscus pusillus, but because of the identification difficulties, the male needs examining under a microscope to identify to species level. Trichoniscus provisorius was once considered to be a form of Trichoniscus pusillus Brandt, 1833, but was given full species status a number of years ago. The only other confirmed Nottinghamshire record, was from Sutton Bonington in 1979 (Fussey, G.D.).
