Peritrechus nubilus (Fallén, 1807) 
Largely found in south-eastern counties of the UK and East Anglia, there are records from some areas within the Midlands. Visually very similar to the commoner Peritrechus geniculatus, there are subtle differences to the antennae of both species. Seemingly found new to Nottinghamshire by a Natural England survey team during a survey of Sherwood Forest in October 2018, the record has unfortunately not made it onto the NBN Atlas. The one below, was found at Budby South Forest in late August 2021.
