Micropeplus staphylinoides (Marsham, 1802)
This is another very small Staphylinid, found in a leaf litter sample taken from along an old railway line at Market Warsop. There appear to be few recent county records, with certainly five all coming from scattered locations in the northern-half of Nottinghamshire.
