Glischrochilus quadriguttatus (Fabricius, 1777)
Of the two species of Glischrochilus (family Nitidulidae) we currently have illustrated, Glischrochilus quadriguttatus is by far the least common. To date (March 2010) we have found this beetle just once, when two were found under the bark of an old Oak branch, in a recently cleared section of Clipstone Old Quarter in March 2010.
