Sigara lateralis (Leach, 1817) 
Common throughout north-western parts of Nottinghamshire, but there is nothing to say anything other than Sigara lateralis is not found throughout the county. This is a species which is often recorded from ponds and ditches which have been fouled by animals such as cattle and it is often recorded from cattle troughs. Flies readily and is often attracted to MV light traps. Virtually all of the records on the distribution map, are attributable to the recording work of Bob Merritt.
