Charagochilus gyllenhalii (Fallén, 1807)
Charagochilus gyllenhalii is a small and rather indistinctly coloured species which is easily found on Bedstraws (Galium spp) by careful searching. Probably fairly widespread in Nottinghamshire, but we know only of records from Sherwood Heath (Godfrey, A.) in 2007 and Warsop Main Pit Top in early August 2016.
