Struebingianella lugubrina (Boheman, 1847)
A scarce Delphicid Bug, but probably under recorded due to its 2.5-3mm length. Typically found in wet or marshy areas where Glyceria grows. Struebingianella species are difficult to identify, with identification best achieved by examination of the genitalia, although S. lugubrina males are quite distinctively marked. This male was found during a quick examination of one of the two small ponds at the Sherwood Forest vistor centre in June 2013 and was the first record for the site.
