Gold Spangle Autographa bractea ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....A moth of north-western parts of the UK, regarded as a migrant in southern and eastern counties. In Nottinghamshire, this moth occurs as a rare wanderer, or possible migrant. Interestingly, there were two confirmed records in July 2013 (remarkably on the same date) which were the county's only records since 1992. We trapped this moth at MV light at Market Warsop in July 2018.
