49.022 .... B&F 1000
Ptycholoma lecheana (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....Occasionally attracted to MV light in the Eakring area and was equally as irregularly recorded during our time visiting the Sherwood Forest CP. May be genuinely uncommon across much of Nottinghamshire, but perhaps more likely to be netted flying at dusk, rather than being reatly attracted to light traps.
