as being new to Nottinghamshire in 2016, when found in St
Chad's Churchyard at Pleasley Vale by Derek Whiteley.
This is a very small millipede (around 4mm), often found
in synanthropic habitats such as gardens and churchyards
etc. It is easily missed due to its size and usually
found under large stones in the Winter and Spring.
Nottinghamshire's second record of Macrosterodesmus
palicola, was found at Attenborough NR by Tim Sexton
in March 2018, quickly followed by a third record from
nearby Toton (Barry Lygo). Our thanks again, go to Tim for providing
us with his photographs below.
