Aproaerema anthyllidella  ((Hübner, 1813
Probably a genuinely scarce moth in Nottinghamshire, but due to its very small size (wing length around 4.5mm) will probably have been overlooked or completely disregarded at most light traps operated across the county. The larva feed on plants such as Kidney Vetch, Restharrow, Lucerne and Clover, so this moth may inhabit a number of Nottinghamshire's former colliery sites. The moth illustrated was trapped in Phil Cadman's Worksop garden at the end of August 2022.
