Widespread throughout much of the south-east UK, Miarus campanulae is a small species (around 3mm) found on various species of Campanula, which at Sherwood Heath would refer to the Harebell Campanula rotundifolium, which grows commonly over parts of the heath. This was the first record for the Sherwood Forest NNR and surrrounding sites.
