Trixagus carinifrons (du Bonvouloir, 1859)
Extremely similar to Trixagus dermestoides, but overall Trixagus carinifrons is much the less common of the two and generally found patchily at sites south of the Humber Estuary. There are just five Throscidae species in the UK and they are closely related to Click Beetles (Elateridae) and although both T. dermestoides and T. carinifrons are found in the Sherwood Forest area, this is by far the more uncommon of the two. The only other Nottinghamshire records we know of, are from Attenborough NR.
