Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis heparana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 
Status .....Fairly common in Nottinghamshire and certainly a moth we record regularly from a wide range of sites. The westerly distribution may well refer to the distribution and trapping locations of the few recorders with an interest in micromoths.
