73.126 .... B&F 2358
Saltern Ear Amphipoea fucosa (Freyer, 1830)  
Status .....Rare in Nottinghamshire, with all recent records coming from Broadholme on the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border. It has been recorded on three occasions since the turn of the present century, with all three records confirmed by dissection on August 7th and 16th 2009 and again on August 10th 2010.

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.
