Scymnus nigrinus (Kugelann, 1794) 
Two records within a few days of each other in August 2021, seem to be the first Nottinghamshire records of Scymnus nigrinus since two historical records listed on the NBN Atlas from as far back as 1816 and 1828, both of which are old records even by historical standards. The one below was found on a small Pine growing on Oak Tree Heath during an invertebrate survey on 10/08/21 and was followed a few days later by three more (also on Pine scrub) found by Sean Browne on Budby South Forest on 13/08/21.
