Status .....A moth only found at a few locations in the very north and south of the county. Most Nottinghamshire records originate from Rushcliffe CP, where it has been recorded most years since the county's second ever record there in 2007 (Thompson, M. and Cox, K.) but there are recent records from the Misson Carr area and the one below, which was trapped and photographed by Phil Lee in his Misterton garden in 2016. Once again, our thanks go to Phil for allowing us to use his photographs on the website. A more recent record, came when ne was trapped at Sherwood Forest Gold Course by Dave Morton and Andy Ashley in July 2022.
