Monopis crocicapitella (Clemens, 1859)
Status .....Seemingly, not a common moth in Nottinghamshire and the only recent records we are aware of are from Attenborough NR, Worksop and Market Warsop, but there are records from a number of locations from suburban Nottingham. Grateful thanks go to Phil Cadman for kindly providing us with the specimen, attracted to MV light in his Worksop garden.
