Pilophorus perplexus (Douglas & Scott, 1875)
A rare Mirid bug in Nottinghamshire and indeed, the one photographed below may well be the first county record. Found and photographed at Bramcote Leisure Centre by Tim Sexton in early September 2018, Pilophorus perplexus is one of four similar UK species and is found on a range of deciduous trees, but especially favours Oak. Our thanks go to Tim for kindly allowing us to use his photographs.
