Dahlica lichenella (Linnaeus, 1761)
Status .....Nottinghamshire's first record of Dahlica lichenella, was from a stone wall at Market Warsop Cemetery in March 2006. Few records have followed, but we recently (2016) confirmed the presence of this moth from another Market Warsop site and near Sookholme village. A much rarer species than Dahlica inconspicuella, which produces very similar cases not usually covered with any algae growth.
