Dichrooscytus gustavi (Josifov, 1981)
Once restricted to chalk downland in southern counties of the UK, Dichrooscytus gustavi still has a largely south-easterly UK range, but has spread north with the planting of Juniper in gardens. As far as we know though, there are currently no other Nottinghamshire records. The one photographed was found flying around mature ornamental Conifers, in the garden of a now demolished house at Fountaindale near Mansfield in July 2017.
