Mompha bradleyi (Riedl), 1965)
Status .....Overlooked as a distinct species until the early 1990's, in Nottinghamshire, Mompha bradleyi was previously known only from Attenborough Nature Reserve, where it appears to be common around the Visitor Centre. It was first recorded there in 2013 by Tim Sexton and is regularly seen on the interior walls. Tim Sexton sent us a specimen to confirm identification in March 2014, whilst we recorded an adult found indoors at Market Warsop a year later.
