70.146 .... B&F 1813
Haworth's Pug Eupithecia haworthiata (Doubleday, 1856)  
Status .....Certainly one of Nottinghamshire's rarest Pugs and traditionally known from just a single Nottinghamshire location at Beacon Hill Road in Newark. The only recent records include three to MV light at Beacon Hill Road in Newark on July 3rd 2009 (Wright, S. Osborne, J. and Atkinson, D.R.) which were  the first since 1999), a single at Broadholme on June 6th 2014 (Gray, M.) and one trapped at Mansfield on July 17th (Beasley, N.).

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.
