Lithobius muticus (C.L. Koch, 1847)
A seemingly common Centipede, found in woodlands where it inhabits moss and leaf litter. Much smaller than the larger, common Lithobius species, Lithobius muticus (15mm) apparently has Nationally notable B status. We found examples of both sexes at Sherwood Forest CP in early March 2013, when we collected a carrier bag of mixed moss and leaf litter for invertebrate sampling.
