Omosita colon (Linnaeus, 1758) 
A small beetle with a rather disjointed UK distribution and seemingly absent from much of the country. According to the NBN Atlas, Nottinghamshire has one rather poorly documented, undated record, which is probably from over a century ago. The one illustrated was attracted to our garden MV light, run at Market Warsop in July 2019.
