Streak Chesias legatella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....Was thought to be fairly widespread across much of Nottinghamshire, wherever the larval foodplant (Broom) grows. However, there are few records from most of south and south-east Nottinghamshire. The one illustrated, was originally trapped by Ian Hunt and kindly brought to us for inclusion by Phil Cadman of the Lound Bird Club Moth Group.
