Nebria brevicollis (Fabricius, 1792)
A common species of Ground Beetle (Carabidae) this was one of numerous adults found in the gardens of Sherwood Forest Farm Park, near Market Warsop in mid-September 2008. We have since gone on to find that Nebria brevicollis is common and can be expected almost anywhere and is certainly one of the most widespread Carabids in Nottinghamshire.
