70.004 .... B&F 1699
Least Carpet Idaea rusticata ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....Recently recorded and suspected as being new to Nottinghamshire in July 2017, when attracted to MV light at Phil Lee's Misterton garden in the north of the county. Formerly restricted to south-eastern counties of the UK, Least Carpet has spread inland and northwards in recent years, so it is perhaps surprising that it has taken so long to be recorded in Nottinghamshire. Our thanks go to Phil for informing us of the record and for providing us with the accompanying photograph.
