Dictyla convergens (Herrich-Schäffer, 1835)
Lacebugs are small insects, having sculptured wings and pronutum, producing the lace-like patterning from which they derive their name. The first county record of Dictyla convergens came in June 2015, in the form of yet another notable record from the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Attenborough Nature Reserve, where the adult below left, was found and photographed by Tim Sexton. Tim recorded the nymph (lower two photographs) a few years later in July 2018. Our thanks go to Tim who kindly allowed us to use both of his photographs on the website.
