Barred Umber Plagodis pulveraria (Linnaeus, 1758)  
Status .....A rare moth in the Nottinghamshire, with only two traceable county records in recent years. One was trapped at Budby Moor near Edwinstowe in 2003 (Finch, G. and Finch, A.) and one was attracted to MV light at Broadholme in 2018 (Gray, M.). Our thanks go to Martin Gray, for kindly providing us with the accompanying photograph.

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. As such, no Broadholme records appear in any county reports, but they are officially recognised by Butterfly Conservation as being Nottinghamshire records.
Photographed at Broadholme April 17th 2018.
