Salicarus roseri (Herrich-Schäffer, 1838
Only known in Nottinghamshire from the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Attenborough NR and the grounds of Worksop Priory (June 2021), Salicarus roseri is an attractive and variably marked Mirid bug found on Willow. With a very scattered UK distribution, it is likely to be found at other wetland sites in the county and for a number of years remained confined to Attenborough NR on the basis of records there in 2007 (Rogers, R.) and 2019 (Sexton, T.). Our thanks go to Tim Sexton, who yet again very kindly provided his photographs (lower two) for use here.
