Lithobius tricuspis Meinert, 1872

Status

GB IUCN status: Least Concern
GB rarity status: Nationally Rare

Identification

This is one of several small Lithobius with projections on tergites 9, 11 and 13 that can be confused with the common L. melanops.  Females can usually be identified by the presence of 3+3 gonopod spurs, but this is not 100% reliable (see Barber & Owen, 2015 and Barber & Gregory, 2019).
