Recurvaria leucatella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....Seems to be decidedly uncommon in Nottinghamshire and it was absent and unrecorded for over a century (Sherwood Forest pre-1874) until being recorded again from Eakring in 2007 and 2008 and Broadholme also in 2008 (Gray, M.). The only other county records are from Misterton in 2018 (Lee, P.) and from Misson Carr in 2023.
