Marsh Oblique-barred Hypenodes humidalis (Doubleday, 1850) 
A surprising addition to the Nottinghamshire fauna, when one was attracted to an MV light run in a Market Warsop garden on July 21st 2021. The record came after nearly a week of hot humid weather, usually condusive to species known to have wandering tendancies turning up. This is one of the smallest examples of UK macrolepidoptera with a wingspan of around 15mm. This equates to about the same size as Eudonia mercurella (Scopariinae) and indeed, this moth could be mistaken for being just another worn micro.
