Orchard Ermine Yponomeuta padella (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....All the records we have are from the north of the county, but this moth is probably found over much of Nottinghamshire. The identification of all Yponomeuta is notoriously difficult. The larvae are much easier and can be safely identified by the foodplant.
Adult reared ex-larva, found near Market Warsop June 2007
