Nottinghamshire Moths 2022

First Nottinghamshire record of Small Brindled Beauty for over a decade 

On a mild February 2nd, I ran a 125W MV light for nearly two hours at the Sherwood Forest Counry Park.

Among the typically expected species, was a Small Brindled Beauty Apocheima hispidaria ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) which not only represented a new (and rare) species personally, but was also the first for the county since a record from 2010, which doesn't seem to have ever made it to the county recorder.
 
Small Brindled Beauty is rare in Nottinghamshire, where it is restricted to the Buck Gates/Country Park area of the Sherwood Forest NNR. There have been four post-2000 records - from 2002 (Wright, S. and Osbourne, J.), 2004 (Wright, S. and Osbourne, J.), 2005 (Wright, S. Osbourne, J. Fox, D. and Saunders, P.) and what seems to be an unsubmitted record from 2010 (Dawson, M. and Beasley, N.).
