Red-line Quaker Agrochola lota (Clerck, 1759)
Status .....Presumably common across much of Nottinghamshire, where it seems to be largely confined to a thin line running south-west to north-east. Not a moth we have personally recorded with any regularity until the past couple of years, when it seems to have increased.
