Ribautiana tenerrima (Herrich-Schäffer, 1834)
Despite this species being common on Bramble throughout much of the UK, there seem to be few Nottinghamshire records. The one illustrated was found and photographed by Tim Sexton, at the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Attenborough Nature Reserve in January 2019. The only other record we are aware of, is from Bentinck Banks (another NWT reserve) in 2007 (Kirby, P.).
