Tachyerges salicis (Linnaeus, 1758)
A small species with a scattered distribution in Nottinghamshire, although in view of the hostplant being Sallow, Tachyerges salicis is undoubtedly more common than records would currently suggest. There are known records from the former Welbeck Colliery site at Meden Vale in 2013 (Wright, R.J.), Misson Carr in 2015 (Flanagan, J.) and more recently in 2023 (Brownley, N. and Brownley, S.) and from the Nottingham Trent University's Brackenhurst Campus in 2017 (Heeney, W.).
