Agonopterix scopariella (Heinemann, 1870) 
Status ..... A rare/uncommon moth in Nottinghamshire with few records. This may largely be down to the difficulties in identifying this moth as an adult, as it is similar to several other Agonopterix species. Probably found in areas with dry, sandy soil and where there are stands of Broom (Cytisus scoparius), the larval foodplant. The adults overwinter.
