Broad-bordered Bee Hawk-moth Hemaris fuciformis (Linnaeus, 1758)  
Status .....This day-flying moth has never been common in Nottinghamshire and it remains absent from several woodland sites which do seem suitable. Following a number of records, Clumber Park remains the only site where breeding is known to occur, but singles are occasionally reported from elsewhere and the moth may be present in the Rufford area.
