Anthrenus fuscus (Olivier, 1789)
Probably quite widespread throughout Nottinghamshire, but the Anthrenus are difficult to identify on external characters alone. We have found Anthrenus fuscus on three occasions to date (November 2013) and all have come from the flowers of Umbellifers, where they eat pollen.
