Clusia flava (Meigen, 1830) 
Something of an uncommon species in Nottinghamshire, with known records coming from Sherwood Forest, Clumber Park areas and Lound Wood at Eakring, where the one pictured was found at the base of a Beech tree in late April 2021. Clusia flava has a 'disupted' distribution and although being widely found across the UK, there are areas where concentrations of records occur.
