29.002 .... B&F 0664
Diurnea lipsiella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....Seems to be uncommon in Nottinghamshire, but is probably more under-recorded due to the late flight time. Often flies during the late morning and afternoon when it can be seen fluttering about two feet above the woodland floor, but we have attracted this species to light. Could easily be mistaken for a Caddisfly.
