Dahlica inconspicuella (Stainton, 1849)
Status .....One case found at Lound Wood in March 2006. Fairly common at Sherwood Forest, most especially around the Country Park area. In early 2010, we found three cases during casual searches of tree trunks and found three active larva, ascending the trunks of trees. The photographs of the newly emerged female, are the only ones we can currently find on the internet.
