Coleophora potentillae (Elisha, 1885)
Status ..... Two Sherwood Forest NNR records, both of which were from Budby South Forest. First recorded there in 1997 (Elliott, B.) Generally common at many sites and in our experience, the larval cases are easiest to find on Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria) in the late Summer and early Autumn.
