Chorosoma schillingi (Schilling, 1829)
A scarce species in Nottinghamshire and described as being local in southern areas of the UK. In Nottinghamshire, the only easily traced previous records of Chorosoma schillingi are via the NBN Gateway, which lists a record from Sherwood Heath near Ollerton. This quite uniquely shaped bug was swept from several grassy areas of Budby South Forest in early September 2010 and recently turned up at Vexation Lane near Edwinstowe and Rufford.
