laichartingella (Goeze, 1783)
.....One found near Thoresby Estate in
March 2006, was only the second Nottinghamshire record.
Further searching revealed the characteristic larval
cases to be fairly common on old Oak stumps throughout
Sherwood Forest, Lound Wood at Eakring and most recently
on a metal fence in the middle of a Mansfield industrial
estate on Crown Farm Way.
