Anthicus antherinus (Linnaeus, 1760) 
A small species, which seems to be uncommon in Nottinghamshire, although this could be partly due to its small size and ant-like appearance. At present, Anthicus antherinus seems to be confined to the lower reaches of the Trent Valley, with a series of records from Attenborough NR, Hoveringham, Holme Pierrepont and Gedling Pit Top.
