Micrambe ulicis (Stephens, 1830)
Widely distributed over much of the UK, this tiny 1.5mm beetle is common on Gorse, probably wherever it occurs. Micrambe ulicis turned up in large numbers by beating Gorse growing at a Forest Town site, during an invertebrate survey in late March 2014. There are several records from the Sherwood Forest area.
