|Found in cattle dung on Penny Pasture Common in mid-August 2008, this was thought at the time to be relatively easy to identify. However, as with many beetles, this proved difficult to ID from photographs alone, as there are many similarly coloured/marked species. We have only found A. ictericus on just the one occasion to date, and it may be that this is quite an uncommon species in Nottinghamshire. Length of the individual photographed was 8mm.|
