Noterus clavicornis (De Geer, 1774)
Found widely in most water bodies across Nottinghamshire, Noterus clavicornis is usually one of the first species to turn up in samples taken at most ponds etc and our knowledge of its distribution in VC56, is thanks to the remarkable recording efforts of Bob Merritt. The ones photographed here, were netted on Budby South Forest in August 2009 and Warsop Main Pit Top in April 2013. Length around 3.5 - 4mm.
