Bradycellus verbasci (Duftschmid, 1812)
A small (around 4mm) ground beetle, not often recorded during the day, but which is greatly attracted to MV light during moth trapping sessions. There are several almost identical species visually, so correct identification of any Bradycellus from photographs is impossible.
