Eriocrania unimaculella (Zetterstedt, 1839)
Status .....The leaf mine is often widespread around Birch woodland and on Birch scrub allowed to grow on areas of heathland throughout the Sherwood Forest area. It is also present at the Idle Valley NR, north of Retford. Should ultimately prove to be more widespread across Nottinghamshire, if the leaf mines were to be looked for.
