Coleophora discordella (Zeller, 1849)
Status .....We know of just one previous Nottinghamshire record of this moth, prior to us finding several larval cases quite easily at Warsop Main Pit Top in 2013. In early 2014, we found it at several other sites including a first record for the Sherwood Forest NNR and on a brownfield site at New Ollerton.
