Protapion dissimile (Germar, 1817) 
Several specimens swept from Hare's-foot Clover Trifolium arvense growing on Thoresby Pit Top in August 2020, possibly represent Nottinghamshire's first  record of Protapion dissimile. There are many similar species, so identification cannot be safely done from photographs.
