Epinotia caprana (Fabricius, 1798)  
Status .....Another moth for which Nottinghamshire seems to be largely devoid of records. The only known record we have, is from Broadholme on the border of Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, when one was attracted to MV light on July 22nd 2011. Our grateful thanks go to Martin Gray, for providing us with the photograph below.

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. However, micromoth records from Broadholme are officially recognised by both the county micromoth recorder and Butterfly Conservation, as being genuine Nottinghamshire records.
