Stethorus pusillus (Herbst, 1797) 
This tiny Coccinellid has been recorded from Nottinghamshire on a couple of occasions. It was first recorded by Nigel Slater as new to Nottinghamshire from Meadow Lane, Attenborough on 14/08/21 and this remained the county's only known record to date, until another was recorded during an invertebrate survey of Lambley's Trinity Church in 2023. This species is found widely over much of the south-east UK and across into the West Midlands.
