Marbled White Melanargia galathea (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....In Nottinghamshire, the Marbled White was believed to have been introduced at a site at Kirkby-in-Ashfield some years ago. Recent years have seen this species spread (probably via disused railway lines) with one on Warsop Main Pit Top in 2007. We have had no more sightings at Warsop Main Pit Top since then, but in 2012 good numbers were discovered on an ungrazed section of the Hills and Holes SSSI at Market Warsop.
