Issus coleoptratus (Fabricius, 1781)
According to the NBN Atlas, this planthopper has a widespread distribution covering much of the southern UK, although distribution does seem rather patchy. Found on many deciduous trees, the Winter is passed in the nymph stage, as shown in the accompanying photographs kindly provided for us by Tim Sexton. Tim found this species at the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Attenborough NR in January 2018, which seems to be the first record for Nottinghamshire.
