Apotomis capreana (Hübner, [1817])  
Status .....In view of the number of similarly coloured/marked species, this moth may be overlooked to a degree, although we have certainly never recorded it from any of the sites we trapped. The key identification feature, is the white, hook-like projection running into the darker wing markings. There are several recent county records. Thanks go to Dave Morton for supplying the specimen in the phototographs.
Photographed at Ollerton Pit Woods June 2023.
