Phyllonorycter scopariella (Zeller, 1846) 
Old leaf mines found on the stems of Broom Cytisus scoparius at Warsop Main Pit Top, seem to be the first Nottinghamshire records of this particular Phyllonorycter, but with the hostplant being generally common, it would be expected that this moth is more widespread across the county than is currently known. The mines are fairly easy to find if present, but care has to be taken to rule out other stem mines of Trifurcula immundella and Leucoptera spartifoliella, although these are stained black whereas those of P. scopariella are a light brown colour.
