Scoparia subfusca (Haworth, 1811)
Status .....Our only records of this moth, were of single moths attracted to an outside light at our house in Market Warsop. Not able to ID the first moth until the following morning, the large size of Scoparia subfusca prompted our initial suspicions to pot it up. This does not seem to be common in Nottinghamshire and we know of few records.
