Stenotus binotatus (Fabricius, 1794)
A variably marked Mirid bug, often showing differences within colouration intensity, with some individuals being strikingy orange. Stenotus binotatus is easily found by sweep-netting grassy areas. Its distribution will certainly cover sites right across Nottinghamshire, but at the moment, there is a lack of records from pretty much anywhere south of the River Trent on the distribution map.
