Sonronius dahlbomi (Zetterstedt, 1840) 
There appear to be no published occurrences of this species from Nottinghamshire, but there are a number of widely scattered records from across much of the UK. The hostplant is given by some sources as possibly Rosebay Willowherb or Raspberry, but it may be more polyphagus than was first thought. Those we found in June 2019, were clearly utilising Hemp Nettle (Galeopsis sp) growing in a recently felled section of Warsop Wood.
