Scorched Carpet Ligdia adustata ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....This moth has a rather interesting distribution in Nottinghamshire, being largely confined to a band running across the middle of the county. We first recorded it at Eakring in 2007 and have had few other records since. There are just two Sherwood Forest NNR records, including one historical record.
