Oedostethus quadripustulatus (Fabricius, 1792) 
This is a tiny Click Beetle and one which is a real rarity in Nottinghamshire with just two recent records. There is a record from Besthorpe, where it was recorded by Charlie Barnes in 2017, but more recently a number were turned up in non-typical habitat at Gedling, found by Adrian Dutton in July 2020. Thanks go to Adrian, who kindly provided the specimen below for photographing.
