Agnocoris reclairei (Wagner, 1949)
The finding of this Mirid Bug at Attenborough NR in April 2017 by Tim Sexton, looks to be the first Nottinghamshire record. Something of a wetland species, Agnocoris reclairei had traditionally been restricted to the Fens of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, but it appears to have undergone a range increase in recent years. There is a single record from Derbyshire listed on the NBN Atlas. Our thanks go to Tim, for allowing us to use his photograph.
