Antigastra catalaunalis (Duponchel, 1833)  
Status .....A rare migrant to the UK and even arer inland. There is just one Nottinghamshire record we know of, occurring during the notable migrant year of 2006, when the individual below was trapped by Martin Gray at Broadholme on the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border on September 26th 2006.

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. However, records from Broadholme are officially recognised by both the county micromoth recorder and Butterfly Conservation, as being genuine Nottinghamshire records.
