Cymus glandicolor (Hahn, 1832)
Cymus glandicolor is one of four UK species. Three of these are known to occur in Nottinghamshire, with Cymus melanocephalus being the commonest of the three. Found on various species of Carex, Cymus glandicolor can be seperated from the other species by the 'keel' across the scutellum. Several of the county's records are from former Colliery sites. This one was found on Warsop Main Pit Top in mid-July 2018.
