Dolichopus ungulatus (Linnaeus, 1758)
Presumed to be common in many of the county's wetland areas, but will often be found at well vegetated garden ponds. For several years, we had good numbers of Dolichopus ungulatus at our own pond in Market Warsop and also recorded it from nearby Warsop Main Pit Top. There are other county records from Netherfield, Attenborough NR and Bentinck Banks. There are many other similar species.
