Melogona scutellaris (Ribaut, 1913)
Unknown in Nottinghamshire until several individuals were recorded from under long-standing rockery stones in a Mapperley garden (Pendleton, T.A. and Pendleton, D.T.) in February 2017. The same mature garden has produced other records of similarly rare/scarce county Millipedes in recent years, showing that suburban gardens can be excellent sources of invertebrate records. Melogona scutellaris is a Millipede typical of synanthropic habitats and is likely to be present at other locations in the county.
