Stenus atratulus (Erichson, 1839) 
A seemingly uncommon/rare Stenus across the UK, with relatively few confirmed records. Historically, I can only trace one previous Nottinghamshire record. This came from Sherwood Forest in 1905 (Kidson-Taylor, J.), well over a century before the one illustrated was found in old straw bales at the Sherwood Forest CP in April 2020.
