Xyleborus dispar (Fabricius, 1792) 
Sparsely distributed across much of the UK and with few Nottinghamshire records, Xyleborus dispar is often referred to as the European Shot Hole Borer. The female is photographed here, measuring just over 3mm in length and was a first record for the Sherwood Forest NNR, when found under the bark of a felled Sycamore trunk on Sherwood Heath in early June 2021.
