Cryptops anomalans (Newport, 1844)
Nottinghamshire has two of the UK's three species of Cryptops, following the county's first ever record of Cryptops anomalans at Worksop Priory by Keith and Belinda Lugg in August 2015. We found a second specimen in June 2016 and more recently in July 2018, but this is a larger species than Cryptops hortensis and when seen under the microscope, has the characteristic 'X' suture on the first thoracic tergite.
