49.277 .... B&F 1199
Eucosma pupillana (Clerck, 1759)
Status .....Rare in Nottinghamshire and generally scarce in the UK, where it does have Nationally notable B status. The only other county records we can trace, were both from the unlikely location of the Sherwood Forest Country Park in 1982 and 1983, unlikely in the lack of Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) the larval foodplant.
