There is a wide choice of pages devoted to coleoptera, including separate species accounts, general summaries and atlases of specific families recorded from Nottinghamshire and details of our work rearing a number of Cryptocephalus beetles, including Cryptocephalus coryli, for which we gained some degree of acknowledgement for our expertise and knowledge on its life hstory and habitat requirements.

The array of available pages includes 37 pages specifically dedicated to the Glow Worm This is another species we are nationally known for and pages include the ongoing Nottinghamshire Glow Worm Survey, the history of the Glow Worm in the county and the results of our Clipstone Old Quarter surveys over a number of years. There are distribution maps and links to the glowing records of many of the  female Glow Worms recorded and the results of our research into the bioluminescence of Glow Worm larvae.

Ladybirds have also been of particular interest over the years and ten pages provide as much information as anyone could require regarding their Nottinghamshire species, distribution, larval stages and more. Plus the arrival of the notorious Harlequin Ladybird in Nottinghamshire is described in detail, along with a look at the effecs it has had on our native species.
