Scolytus intricatus (Ratzeburg, 1837)
This is a small bark beetle which is often commonly called the Oak Bark Beetle. These were greatly attracted to a pile of mixed logs in Sherwood Forest CP in June 2010, but we were fortunate to observe and photograph this mating pair. The female was boring into the bark when first found, with the male gradually following her in during excavation.
