Bucculatrix albedinella (Zeller, 1839) 
There are historical Nottinghamshire records of this moth dating back sometime before 2013, but at the moment there appear to be no available details for these records. This was always a species Dilys and I looked for over many years, but never found and with widespread searching, the very small mines of this species, may well turn out to be rather more common than is currently supposed. The mine illustrated below, was one of two old mines found on Elm growing at the Sconce and Devon Park in Newark, in late October 2022.
