Dark Umber Philereme transversata (Hufnagel, 1767)
Status .....First Eakring record was as recent as July 2010 and this is a moth we have only trapped twice so far. Relatively widespread across the whole of Nottinghamshire, although there are large sections of the county missing records, based on the evidence we have. Our thanks go to Phil Cadman, for letting us photograph the Worksop moth illustrated.
