Helina depuncta (Fallén, 1825)
Probably more widespread and common in Nottinghamshire than the number of records on the distribution map suggests. Often recorded sitting on foliage in the Summer and early Autumn, the one photographed was found at Clipstone Old Quarter in October 2016. Recorded just once before (in 1914) from the Sherwood Forest NNR.
