Brachyiulus pusillus (Leach, 1815)
Not recorded historically in Nottinghamshire and the only other record of Brachyiulus pusillus we are aware of, dates back to 2001 at Wilwell Farm Cutting. This is a relatively small Millipede, described as common across most of the UK and the dark stripe within a light band along its length, is not immediately obvious to the naked eye. This one was found under the loose bark of a fallen branch at Hills and Holes SSSI at Market Warsop in May 2014.
