35.097 .... B&F 0800
Gelechia rhombella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 
Status .....Another species which we presume to be uncommon, or possibly even rare in the county, with a lack of any recent records other than one trapped at Broadholme by Martin Gray on July 22nd 2013. Similar to the more common Bryotropha domestica, this species could easily be overlooked and can be identified by the black mark at the base of the forewing.

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.
