Webb's Wainscot Globia sparganii (Esper, 1789)  
Status .....Only known from three Nottinghamshire sites after appearing in VC56 for the first time in 2016, with two records from the Trent Valley area, including Besthorpe GP (Wright, S. and Osborne, J.) and from Broadholme (Gray, M.) on the county border with Lincolnshire. The most recent record is from Misterton in 2020 (Lee, P.). Our thanks go to Martin and Phil, for once again providing the accompanying photographs.

A note on Broadholme records: Broadholme is in vice county VC56 of Nottinghamshire (which is covered by www.eakringbirds.com), but not in the administrative county of Nottinghamshire on which  the county's moth records are based by the county macromoth recorder. As such, no Broadholme records appear in any county reports, but they are officially recognised by Butterfly Conservation as being Nottinghamshire records.
