Lithobius crassipes (L. Koch, 1862)
A relatively small Centipede (14mm) Lithobius crassipes is common over much of Nottinghamshire, but the lack of interest amongst naturalists in recording Myriapods, currently suggests a more southerly Nottinghamshire distrbution. It is known historically from Nottinghamshire, with J.W. Carr quoting records from two sites, at Kingston-upon-Soar in February 1908 and Sherwood Forest in June 1912.
