Stictoleptura rubra (Linnaeus, 1758)
Recorded in the old garden of a now demolished house at Fountaindale, near Mansfield in July 2017, this appears to be the first county record of this distinctive Longhorn. Stictoleptura rubra is common in East Anglia and has spread into other parts of the UK, including south Wales, no doubt benefitting from the widescale planting of commercial Pine Forestry.
