Scarlet Tiger Callimorpha dominula (Linnaeus, 1758)  
Status .....An adult attracted to MV light at Southwell in July 2015 (Yates, D.) was the first record for Nottinghamshire. A second duly followed in 2018, when an adult was found in a Beeston Garden (per Sexton, T.) but there have been no further records since. Must be considered to be a potential colonist in the coming years, although there seems to be no real evidence of any national range expansion.
