Lasioglossum smeathmanellum (Kirby, 1802)
This is a small soliatary species, widespread over much of the southern-half of the UK, but with seemingly few records from the East Midlands area. There are few recent Nottinghamshire records, but it has been recorded from Clumber Park (Phillips, A.) and Oak Tree Heath in Mansfield. The one illustrated, was recorded and photographed by Duncan Lyon in his Woodthorpe garden in 2017. Our thanks go to Duncan, for very kindly allowing us to use his photograph below.
