Geophilus insculptus (Attems, 1895 & Dagger)
This Centipede seems fairly common in Nottinghamshire, but identification of these invertebrates is extremely difficult and cannot be done by photographs alone. This Geophilus insculptus was one of three found under a log at Eaton Wood near Retford in late March 2013.
