Rosy Footman Miltochrista miniata (Forster, 1771)
Status .....Rare in Nottinghamshire, with all but one of the county's recent records coming from sites in the east of the county. There are records from Newark in 2006 (Atkinson, D.), Besthorpe in 2013 (Wright, S. and Osborne, J.) and from Broadholme in 2016 (Gray, M.).

A note on Broadholme records: Broadholme is in vice county VC56 of Nottinghamshire (which is covered by www.eakringbirds.com), but not in the administrative county of Nottinghamshire on which  the county's moth records are based by the county macromoth recorder. As such, no Broadholme records appear in any county reports, but they are officially recognised by Butterfly Conservation as being Nottinghamshire records.
Photographed at Broadholme, July 19th 2016.
