Haworth's Minor Celaena haworthii (Curtis, 1829)
Status .....Typically more of a moorland species, but occasional specimens wander into other habitats. Haworth's Minor is (perhaps not surprisingly) a  decidedly rare moth in Nottinghamshire, with recent records from Misterton Soss in 2013 (Wood, N.) Broadholme in 2018 (Gray, M.) and Misterton in both 2020 and 2021 (Lee, P). Apart from Misterton Soss (August) all other records have occurred in July.

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. As such, no Broadholme records appear in any county reports, but they are officially recognised by Butterfly Conservation as being Nottinghamshire records.
