Hemerobius humulinus (Linnaeus, 1761) 
The majority of county records have come from the two SSSI's, incorporated within the Sherwood Forest NNR, despite this being one of the more common of the so-called Brown Lacewings. There are few Nottinghamshire records, but this species should turn up in a wide variety of habitats including woodland. The examples illustrated, were both beaten from Ivy growing on Sycamore at Cockglode Wood near Ollerton in late May 2019.
