Saldula pallipes (Fabricius, 1794) 
Supposedly common and widespread around gravel pits and other inland water bodies, yet there seems to be no accurately documented Nottinghamshire records other than several from Thoresby Pit Top in August 2020. On Thoresby (and probably at other similar sites locally) Saldula pallipes can be found near a water-filled ditch and water seepages, usually under low growing plants such as Sand Spurry Spergularia rubra. The nymph is currently illustrated.
