Incurvaria oehlmanniella (Hübner, 1796)
Status .....Usually recorded at MV light, but this seems to be an uncommon moth in Nottinghamshire. Unfortunately, our present knowledge of this moth's distribution, relies on a few regular moth trappers who actually take the time to record our local microlepidoptera.

Note:- Incurvaria masculella females are similar and have the costal spot further from the end of the wing than shown on Incurvaria oehlmanniella females.
