Neolygus viridis (Fallén, 1807)
A generally common and widespread species, although the NBN Gateway map shows the UK distribution of Neolygus viridis to be rather patchy. There are two very similar Neolygus species, but N. viridis is generally the more well marked of the three. Despite being described as common, we can currently trace no other Nottinghamshire records. The one photographed, was one of two found in the grounds of Worksop Priory in September 2015. Usually found on deciduous trees, especially Lime.
