Strophosoma capitatum (De Geer, 1775)
Found once at Sherwood Forest NNR in July 2008 in two weeks surveying the forest, when Strophosoma capitatum was presumed to be less common than the similar Strophosoma melanogrammum. Found in larger numbers during the Spring of 2010, when adults were often found climbing the trunks of Birches.
