Large Ranunculus Polymixis flavicincta ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)  
Status .....An uncommon moth in Nottinghamshire with just a handful of recent records. There are records for Bestwood in 2013 (Tobin, S.), Newark in 2006 (Atkinson, D.) and Broadholme in 2012 (Gray, M.). Our thanks go to Martin Gray, for kindly providing us with the photograph below.

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.
