04.100 .... B&F 0035
Ectoedemia minimella (Zetterstedt, 1839)  
Status .....There appears to be just a single Nottinghamshire record of this (nationally) rather local species, from Broadholme in October 2013. Likely to be more widespread in the county and it should be expected to occur in the Sherwood Forest area.

A note on Broadholme records: Broadholme is in vice county VC56 of Nottinghamshire (which is covered by www.eakringbirds.com), but not in the administrative county of Nottinghamshire on which the county's moth records are based by the county macromoth recorder, but records from Broadholme, are officially recognised by both the county micromoth recorder and Butterfly Conservation, as being genuine Nottinghamshire records.
