Stictoleptura rubra (Linnaeus, 1758)
One recorded in the old garden of a now demolished house at Fountaindale near Mansfield in July 2017, was thought for a number of years to be the first county record of this distinctive Longhorn. But it was actually recorded a number of before, at Idle Stop in July 2014 (Lee, P.) and is present just over the border in Lincolnshire at Laughton Forest. Stictoleptura rubra  is common in East Anglia and has spread into other parts of the UK, including south Wales, no doubt benefitting from the widescale planting of commercial Pine Forestry.
