Stomis pumicatus (Panzer, 1795)
Stomis pumicatus is an uncommon ground beetle (Carabidae) which has only been recorded at Sherwood Forest on a couple of occasions. It is perhaps one of the most distinctive species by shape, but also by the extremely large mandibles. This one was found under moss at Clipstone Old Quarter in April 2010.
