Nemasoma varicorne (C.L.Koch, 1847)
A small Millipede found under the bark of trees and probably a much under-recorded species, with three previous Nottinghamshire records, from Whatton and Radcliffe-on-Trent in 1969 and at Sherwood Forest in 1970 (Jones, R.E.). Our first confirmed record of Nemasoma varicorne, came from Sherwood Forest CP in April 2015, when one was found under the bark of a recently (within two years) felled Oak.
