Berytinus minor (Herrich-Schäffer, 1835
Found and photographed below by Tim Sexton at the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Attenborough Nature Reserve in April 2019, this appears to be the first record of Berytinus minor for VC56. There are six species of Berytinus in the UK (of which B. minor is the commonest) but only two are currently known from Nottinghamshire.  It is found in grassy areas containing Clover and Rest Harrow and should be relatively widespread in Nottinghamshire.
