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 two recent county records.

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