Cyclamen Tortrix Clepsis spectrana (Treitschke, 1830)
Status .....First recorded at Eakring in 2008 and occasionally recorded at MV light from the Sherwood Forest area. The lack of regular recording of the county's micro moths in the southern half of Nottinghamshire, probably gives a misleading impression of its actual range.
