Derocrepis rufipes (Linnaeus, 1758)
This small leaf beetle was a new species for us in May 2012, when found in good numbers on Gorse growing at Hills and Holes SSSI at Market Warsop. Found fairly commonly across much of the UK, it is perhaps surprising that Derocrepis rufipes is not more regularly encountered in Nottinghamshire.
