Donacia clavipes (Fabricius, 1792) 
This is a rare Donacia in Nottinghamshire, with modern VC56 records from Holme Pierrepont in 2011 and Shelford in 2014 (Adrian Dutton) and from Attenborough NR in 2014 (Bob Merritt). It should perhaps turn up at some other Trent Valley sites, but sometimes getting close enough to sample particular areas for Donacias without getting wet, can prove difficult. Thanks go to Tim Sexton, for supplying the photograph below.
