Stenurella melanura (Linnaeus, 1758) 
This is a rare longhorn beetle in Nottinghamshire, with just four modern records from around the county. There are records from Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust reserves at Farndon Willow Holt and Treswell Wood in 2003 (neither of which have disappointingly ever made their way onto the NBN Atlas) and from a Carlton garden in 2011 (Dutton, A.) with the one below being a major surprise personally, at Ollerton Pit Woods in July 2021.
