Miltogramma punctata (Meigen, 1824)
Miltogramma punctata seems a rare Sarcophagid in Nottinghamshire. The only records we can trace are both from heathland sites of Oak Tree Heath, Mansfield in 2008 and from Sherwood Heath SSSI near Ollerton in 2012. Miltogramma punctata seems more specific in its habitat requirements than those Sarcophagidae which frequent carrion and are more often found in a broader range of habitat types.
