Chilo phragmitella (Hübner, 1805) 
Status .....Recorded from Sherwood Forest for the first time in 2013, occurring on a night of high moth activity, when several other wandering species were attracted to MV light. This moth seems to be restricted to wetland sites in the very north of the county and lower part of the Trent Valley, but is obviously prone to occassional wandering.
