Lymexylon navale (Linnaeus, 1758)
Lymexylon navale is an extremely slender beetle, which is currently designated as RDB2 (vulnerable). The first Nottinghamshire record came in 2008, when the beetle turned up during an invertebrate survey. We subsequently followed this up, with a male found dead in a spiders web on virtually the same tree in 2010. More recently, this female was found during a nocturnal survey in July 2014.
