Dasytes virens (Marsham, 1802) 
The NBN Atlas shows relatively few sites for Dasytes virens, with most being from the south-eastern corner of the UK. There are few records north of London and the occurrence of one found and photographed by Tim Sexton at Attenborough NR in June 2019 (lower photographs), looks set to be the county's first. A second record has subsequently occurred at East Bridgford in July 2023, where it was found in good numbers on the flowers of Bramble.
