Linnaemya picta (Meigen, 1824) 
This Tachinid fly was recorded as new to Nottinghamshire in 2018, when found and photographed at Netherfield Lagoons by Peter Smith. Very similar to Linnaemya tesselans, Linnaemya picta only arrived in the UK as recently as 2009, but has spread widely across southern counties within a relatively short period of time. Our thanks go to Peter for allowing us to use his photographs below.
