Nemophora cupriacella (Hübner, 1819
Generally a moth of grassy, downland sites, it may well be that this moth occurs more widely than records suggest. However, there are relatively few records listed on the NBN Atlas and it is regarded as being scarce across the UK. The true status of this moth in Nottinghamshire is thus presently unknown and the only available record, is of the one found and photographed on the site of the former Calverton Colliery in June 2022 by Nick and Samantha Brownley. Grateful thanks go to Nick for allowing his photographs to be used here.
