Choneiulus palmatus (Nemec, 1895)
An extremely difficult Millipede to identify to species level, Choneiulus palmatus is impossible to separate from Proteroiulus fuscus and Nopoiulus kochii, without the aid of a microscope. It seems very much a Millipede of buildings and urban sites, but this was still a surprise find, underneath the loose mortar of an old stone wall at Church Warsop in late March 2015. There have been recent records from Nottingham City Hospital and from underneath loose mortar on a stone wall along Perry Road, New Basford.
