Geophilus flavus (De Geer, 1778)
This is not a Centipede we have found very often and our first confirmed record came from Sherwood Forest CP in early May 2013, when this one was found underneath a log. Presumably a common and widespread Centipede in Nottinghamshire, but Centipedes and Millipedes are not recorded by anyone else we know of, so the actual Nottinghamshire distribution of Geophilus flavus is largely unknown.
