Least Pygmy Woodlouse Trichoniscus pygmaeus (Sars, 1898)
This tiny woodlouse was not recorded in Nottinghamshire for many years after the county's only other records from West Bridgford in 1975 (Rundle, A.J.) and at Sutton Bonington in 1979 (Fussey, G.D.) and 1990 (Daws, J.). In 2018, we finally found single specimens at Market Warsop in March and Cockglode Wood near Edwinstowe in November, the latter specimen being in company with several Haplopthalmus danicus.
