Aspilapteryx tringipennella (Zeller, 1839)
Status .....Although this moth is probably common over much of Nottinghamshire, there is something of a northerly-bias to the records. Adults are easily missed (or just not recorded at MV light) and maybe more easily recorded by looking for the distinctive leaf mine on the leaves of Ribwort Plantain.
