Idiocerus stigmaticalis (Lewis, 1834)
There are numerous historical records of Idiocerus stigmaticalis from Nottinghamshire, of which the vast majority are from sites along the Trent Valley. In more recent years, it appears to have been little recorded, which may well just be a reflection the little coverage Homoptera get in the county. We only know of modern records from Langold Lake in 1986 (Foster, S.), Netherfield Ash Lagoons in 2014 (Netherfield Wildlife Group) and most recently from Attenborough NR in 2018 (Tim Sexton). Our thanks go to Tim Sexton for providing us with his photographs illustrating this species.
