Mere Wainscot Photedes fluxa ((Hübner, [1809])  
Status .....Currently known from Nottinghamshire on the basis of a single record, when one was attracted to light at Broadholme on the Nottinghamshire border with neighbouring Lincolnshire in August 2016 (Gray, M.), Our thanks go to Martin Gray, for kindly providing us with the accompanying photograph.

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.
