Pseudovadonia livida (Fabricius, 1777) 
With just one historical Nottinghamshire record dating back to 1901, Pseudovadonia livida remained seemingly absent from the county for well over a hundred years, until found again at both Collingham (Barnes, C.) and Langford Lowfields (Davidson, R.) in June 2015. More recently, it was found in good numbers by Phil Lee, who photographed several beetles (lower photographs) on the flowerheads of Yarrow at Idle Stop in June 2019. Most recently, it turned up again on Hogweed flowers growing along a field edge at Bleasby, in early July 2023.
