Chrysopilus asiliformis (Preyssler, 1791)
It's small size means that Chrysopilus asiliformis is very easily over-looked, which could explain the lack of Nottinghamshire records, although there also appears to be few Lincolnshire records, despite it being widespread across of the UK up to Scotland (NBN Atlas). This female was photographed near water at Warsop Main Pit Top in late June 2018, but there are records from Attenborough NR and Dyscarr Wood (Bradford, P.).
