Esymus pusillus (Herbst, 1789) ..... Formerly Aphodius pusillus
Possibly rare in Nottinghamshire, with a UK distribution largely south of a line drawn between the mouth of the River Mersey and The Wash. Two of these were found underneath some metal sheeting at the side of the River Trent at Hoveringham in March 2021, which wasn't being grazed at the time.
