Coleophora juncicolella (Stainton, 1851)
Status .....Not known to have previously occurred before in Nottinghamshire, it was suggested we look for the larval cases of Coleophora juncicolella, after it was recently recorded for the first time from Lincolnshire (April 2015) by Martin Gray. Two small larval cases were soon swept from Heather on Budby South Forest in mid-April 2015. Likely to turn be present at other heathland sites in the Sherwood Forest area.
