Dicyphus globulifer (Fallén, 1829) 
One of the less recorded Dicyphus plant bugs in Nottinghamshire, Dicyphus globulifer is found on both Red and White Campion, so it should be more frequent than present records would suggest. The one below was found on White Campion growing along a field edge of a field between Cuckney and Market Warsop in early May 2019. The only other record we have, is from a former picnic area near Budby, dating to 1995 (Backenbury, A.).
