Small Scallop Idaea emarginata (Linaeus, 1758) 
Although the distribution map may well lead to the impression that this is a common Nottinghamshire moth, in reality, it is considerably more restricted in its range across the county. Most records are from along the Trent Valley, from the south-west of the county heading up through to Newark. Records away from here are rare, but there are three from the wider Clumber Park/Carburton Border area and Elkesley, where the moth photographed below was trapped and photographed by Paul Coombes on 09/08/20. Grateful thanks go to Paul for providing his photograph for inclusion here.
