Tawny Pinion Lithophane semibrunnea (Haworth, 1809)
Status .....Rare in Nottinghamshire, but the frequency of records has increased in recent years. However, the larvae of Tawny Pinion feed on Ash, so it may be that if the fungal infection leading to Ash dieback becomes widespread, there may be fewer records of this moth in a few years time. Our thanks go to Phil Lee, who kindly supplied the lower photograph and to Paul Coombes who supplied the moth in the top photographs.
