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

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.
