Eriocrania sangii (Wood, 1891)
Status .....Generally widespread throughout the Sherwood Forest and Mansfield areas of the county. The distribution map, currently suggests that Eriocrania sangii is restricted to woodland and heathland on light, sandy soils, but there is no other immediately available information, to help give any idea of this moth's overall Nottinghamshire distribution. The dark grey larva (if present) makes this an easy leaf mine to identify, as all other Eriocrania larvae are coloured creamy white.
