Drymus ryei (Douglas & Scott, 1865)
Found in the same ground layer/leaf litter habitat as Drymus sylvaticus, Drymus ryei has a much darker wing membrane, darker forewings and both pronotum and scutellum are also black. It is very easily confused with the more common D. sylvaticus, and this may be the first Nottinghamshire record, found in a sample of moss and leaf litter at Sherwood Forest CP in April 2018.
