Enteucha acetosae (Stainton, 1854)
Status .....This may well be a relatively common miner across Nottinghamshire, but a mine found on Sorrel at Sherwood Heath in early September 2011, looks like being the first county record. One of the world's smallest moths, some adults having just a 3mm wingspan.
