It has photos and distribution maps of the UK species. L. nodosus seems a common species and is apparently distinguished by some lump on its pedipalp.

Many thanks Alan,
Its association with compost does it for me.

Looks like L. nodosus; but the species in this genus is not that easy to id from an image.
As the National Pseudoscorpion Recorder I am happy to identify material.
Contact me directly: gerald@chelifer.com
Specimens can also be sent to me.
