Anarsia innoxiella (Gregersen & Karsholt, 2017) 
A moth on the increase and expanding its range north across the southern-half of the UK. Anarsia innoxiella was only recognised as new to science in 2017, after a paper was published saying that most light-trapped specimens previously identified as Anarsia lineatella, were actually likely to be Anarsia innoxiella. It is thought to have arrived in Nottinghamshire only a few years ago and records have come from just four locations as of June 2023, including West Bridgford, Elkesley, Market Warsop and Colwick, with multiple records known to have occurred from the first two sites mentioned. The Market Warsop specimen was trapped on 23/06/23, the same night as three were trapped at Elkesley (Coombes, P.).
Photographed at Market Warsop June 2023.
