(3mm) Histerid, is barely even recognisable as being a
beetle, unless aware that such shaped species even exist. Many Histeridae are larger and often found in carrion
or dung, but Paromalus flavicornis is a beetle
found under bark or in/near fungi. Several adults were
found under bark of a fallen Beech branch near Cuckney in early May 2015
and more recently, a single specimen turned up (again on Beech) at Cutts
Wood near Bilsthorpe in April 2023. It has been
recorded from Sherwood Forest and also Treswell Wood.
