Argyrotaenia ljungiana (Thunberg, 1797)
Status .....A common moth across the UK from areas of moorland and heathland, yet two taken flying around Heather on Budby South Forest in early April 2011, were surprisingly the first record for the Sherwood Forest NNR. Probably found in all heathland sites locally.
