Cryptocephalus fulvus (Goeze, 1777)
......
A tiny leaf beetle, considerably smaller than the more well known (but much rarer) Cryptocephalus coryli and with adults measuring only around 2.5mm. Adults were swept from St John's Wort (Hypericum sp) at Warsop Main Pit Top in July 2009, June 2010 and also from Gedling Pit Top and Bevercotes Pit Wood in July 2010 and the latter site again in June 2011. Seems to be relatively common where its foodplant grows.
