Omonadus floralis (Linnaeus, 1758)
A very small beetle with few recent Nottinghamshire records we are aware of. We found numbers of Omonadus floralis in an old manure heap near Church Warsop in April 2016 and the only other recent county records we can trace are from the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Besthorpe NR in 2000 (Merritt, B.) and Nottingham Trent University's Brackenhurst Campus near Southwell in 2014 (Heeney, W.).
