Burnet Companion Euclidia glyphica (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....Formerly quite uncommon in Nottinghamshire, but has increased enormously over the past few years and should be expected in suitable habitat across the county. This day-flying moth has showed one of the greatest range expansions in recent years, spreading from south-west Nottinghamshire. It is probably present on most former colliery sites, grassy, flower rich meadows and woodland rides. Recorded for the first time in over a century at Sherwood Forest during 2021.
