Coleophora limosipennella (Duponchel, [1843])
Status .....Uncommon and only recorded as being new to Nottinghamshire in 2007, when a larval case was found at Bunny (per Dave Budworth). There appear to have been no further records until we found three larval cases at different stages of development, on a small Wych Elm growing along Peafield Lane near Market Warsop in early June 2016. A very small case, was recorded from Wellow Park in late 2021.
