Epuraea marsueli (Reitter, 1872)
A very small and usually inconspicuous Nitidulid, which measures no more than 3mm in length. Like other pollen beetles, Epuraea marsueli visits flowers and Umbellifers would appear to be a favourite. In the UK, it appears to be wide-ranging, but is currently restricted to only the Sherwood Forest area of Nottinghamshire.
