Red-necked Footman Atolmis rubricollis (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....Still a relative rarity in Nottinghamshire and probably increasing it's range. This adult was one of two trapped at Clipstone Old Quarter in June 2013 and were the first records for the Sherwood Forest area since the 1800's. There are now a number of records from across the county, but it still seems to be found nowhere with any regularity.
