73.053 .... B&F 2214
Chamomile Shark Cucullia chamomillae ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....Recorded once from Eakring in 2007, but most of Nottinghamshire's records are from the south of the county, within the Trent Valley. This is certainly an uncommon moth in Nottinghamshire and a species which isn't recorded annually.
Photographed at Lound Wood May 2007
