Hellinsia lienigianus (Zeller, 1852) 
There appears to be no previous Nottinghamshire records of Mugwort Plume, prior to the one illustrated being trapped by Paul Coombes at Elkesley in September 2021. Hellinsia lienigianus is smaller than the similarly marked and coloured Emmelina monodactyla, which is the species most people are familar with, but Hellinsia tephradactyla (Plain Plume) is another very similar species which could cause identification difficulties, although is much rarer nationally. Identification was confirmed by Martin Gray.
