Trechus quadristriatus (Schrank, 1781)
A small and common ground beetle, found in a variety of habitats. With such a small size, Trechus quadristriatus and the very similar Trechus obtusus are easily overlooked due to their small sizes and differences between the two are slight. Length 3.5-4mm. This one was found at Nettleworth Manor, near Mansfield Woodhouse in early October 2008.
