Bankesia conspurcatella  (Zeller, 1850)
Status .....Remarkably discovered new to Nottinghamshire, when found by Phil Cadman on a kitchen wall on February 27th 2021. The initial identification was Dahlica inconspicuella, which is visually almost identical, but in view of the suburban Worksop location and D. inconspicuella's restricted range in the county, it was considered worth checking to be certain of the ID, as Bankesia conspurcatella was strongly suspected. Thanks to the 'gen det' assistance of Martin Gray, the moth was confirmed as being Bankesia conspurcatella.
Photographed at Worksop February 2021.
