The most surprising and pleasing was the Cis pulled from Piptoporus (though I think it isn't called that any more). The fruit body was full of fresh-looking round holes so I knew there was something inside and I knew that I had read something about that something. It all gets very vague sometimes.
Anyway, according to the 2006 Nature of Fife inventory there were no species in the family recorded from Fife, though I see from NBN that one other Cis species has been recorded from 1958. Was this not known? Was it discarded as dodgy? Who knows. Anyway. Cis bilamellatus is a cracking little thing so I'm giving it all the space pictorially. This is the fourth beetle I've recorded recently which comes in comfortably under 2mm!
