Acleris schalleriana (Linnaeus, 1761) 
Status .....Another Acleris which perhaps seems generally uncommon in VC56 Nottinghamshire and is rarely reported as an adult. The moth is quite variable and there are of course several similar species, but the larval feeding damage on the leaves of Viburnum lantata and Viburnum opulus, may well be the best indicator of this moth's presence at a site.
