73.065 .... B&F 2227
Sprawler Asteroscopus sphinx (Hufnagel, 1766)
Status .....Not common across Nottinghamshire, especially in western parts of the county. This may partly be due to the general lack of recording during the latter months of the year, but it does seem restricted to sites lying on heavier soils. Occurs in both light and dark forms.
