Ptycholomoides aeriferana (Herrich-Schäffer, 1851)
Status ..... This moth was first recorded in Kent in 1951 and it has since spread northwards through the UK. We know of several Nottinghamshire records, which show that this moth is as likely to occur in gardens, as in any forested habitat. It should be expected to occur wherever Larch (Larix decidua) grows.
