Tachyporus atriceps (Stephens, 1832)
Tachyporus atriceps is a tiny Rove Beetle, this record of which turned out to be the first for the Sherwood Forest area. Such a record is extremely likely to be due to it's small size, as it has been proven that much larger species can remain undetected for decades. These were found in leaf litter at Sherwood Forest CP in March 2013 and under a log at Clipstone Old Quarter in April 2009.
