Nebria salina (Fairmaire & Laboulbčne, 1854)
Nebria salina is very similar to Nebria brevicollis. Tending to favour more open, dry sites, it can be common where it occurs. However, despite being widespread, we only recently found this beetle for the first time at Vexation Lane, near Edwinstowe in early November 2012. Identificationof this specimen, was eventually confirmed in February 2013.
