Dorytomus tortrix (Linnaeus, 1761) 
Uncommon in Nottinghamshire, with just three traceable records at the time of writing. Dorytomus tortrix should be looked for among stands of Aspen (Populus tremula) which has become increasingly common as part of roadside planting schemes and on some former Colliery sites. The one below, was actually found on the site of the former Thoresby Colliery, beaten from rejuvenating Aspen in early May 2020. Other known records/sites are Stanford Cut-off in the very south of the county (Lott, D.A. 1994) and Holme Pierrepont (Dutton, A. 2007).
