Small China-mark Cataclysta lemnata (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .... Was thought to be relatively common at wetland sites around much of Nottinghamshire. However, the records we have available, would suggest that this moth has a much more restricted distribution and is uncommon. Only the male is white.
