Cloaked Minor Mesoligia furuncula ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 
Status .....Relatively common, but mainly from northern parts of Nottinghamshire. Although the 'Minors' are difficult to identify on external characteristics and markings, Cloaked Minor will become instantly recognisable with experience on the basis of resting posture.
