Stenus impressus (Germar, 1824)
Of all the many Rove Beetles, Stenus are the most instantly recognisable in the field, but there are many other species which are only really seperable under a microscope. Grass tussock sampling on Budby South Forest, provided many examples of over-wintering beetles, including several Stenus species, some of which were eventually identified as Stenus impressus.
