Rhyzobius chrysomeloides (Herbst, 1792) 
Currently found only in the south of the county, Rhyzobius chrysomeloides is relatively new to Nottinghamshire, when first recorded at Stapleford by Steve Lane in 2013. There have only been a handful of records since, but it has been found at Carlton (Dutton, A.), Holme Pierrepont (Golding, G.) Lambley, Chilwell (Browne, S.) Attenborough (Browne, S. and Slater, N.). and Beeston. It is certainly very common at those sites it has been deliberatley searched for and is very easy to find by beating Ivy (Hedera helix) growing along hedgerows or up trees.
