Eledona agricola (Herbst, 1783)
Eledona agricola has been recorded from the Sherwood Forest NNR several times over the years, most recently in 2010 by Keith Alexander. In early March 2014, we recorded this small beetle for the first time, when three were located within old, fleshy Bracket fungus, growing on an ancient Oak in an area of recently felled commercial Pines.
