|Despite being a difficult group to identify, it is still surprising that Water Beetles have been totally overlooked throughout all recording at Sherwood Forest NNR. Consequently, all species such as this Agabus bipustulatus, seem to be new to the NNR. This one was netted from the pool at Budby South Forest and also found at Clipstone Old Quarter in early September 2009. Length 10mm.|
