Stathmopoda pedella (Linnaeus, 1761)
Status ..... Described as widespread, but local in the south of the UK, this individual photographed by Martin Warne and Phil Cadman at the Idle Valley NR was the first Nottinghamshire record and it was recorded from there again six years later. It has since tunred up at several other Nottinghamshire sites including Market Warsop, Nuthall, Keyworth and Attenborough and in view of the wide-scale planting of Alder at many former colliery sites, this moth is probably under-recorded in the county.
