Lispe tentaculata (De Geer, 1776) 
This is probably a widespread and much under-recorded Muscid across Nottinghamshire. It favours well vegetated sites near water, but there are other species very similar to Lispe tentaculata. The one below, was found and photographed by Peter Smith at Netherfield Lagoons and grateful thanks go to Peter for kindly providing the photographs for use here.
