Leistus terminatus (Hellwig in Panzer, 1793)
A common ground beetle, but often preferring a damper habitat than the similar Leistus ferrugineus. Our first and only record of Leistus terminatus, came when one appeared at MV light in an area of the Sherwood Forest CP, being the first record since the early 1900's. The one in the lower two photographs was found at the Sherwood Forest CP in July 2012.
