Coranus sp .........
In early July 2012, Gary Joynt and ourselves found an Assassin Bug nymph in an area of ancient grass heath in Sherwood Forest CP. It's identity was unknown and preseumed to be Coranus subapterus - the Heath Assassin Bug. In late July 2017, we swept an adult Coranus sp (upper four photographs) from an area of Budby South Forest and when photographing it, presumed it was a female C. subapterus. On return home and after reviewing the photographs, we realised that it may not be C. subapterus and mcould well be something else. Investigations are continuing, as is the search for another specimen.
