|This Click Beetle, although black in colouration immediately stands out as being different. Instead of the shiny black pronutum and elytra of other similar looking Click Beetles in Nottinghamshire, the distinct matt black of Aplotarsus incanus made this obviously different in the field. Despite being a common species across the UK, this looks as though this is the first modern Nottinghamshire record. Two of these were found on low vegetation, on the grass verge of Sookholme Lane near Nettleworth Manor in early June 2012. Length around 9mm.|
