Rush Wainscot Globia algae (Esper, 1788)
Status .....Unknown in Nottinghamshire until one was attracted to MV light at Broadholme on the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border in 2012 (Gray, M.). This is an uncommon and local moth in the UK, but may appear at some of the Trent Valley's former gravel extraction sites at some time in the future.

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 by Martin Gray at Broadholme, September 3rd 2012.
