Webb's Wainscot Globia sparganii (Esper, 1789)  
Status .....Only known from two Nottinghamshire sites after appearing in VC56 for the first time in 2016. Both records are from the Trent Valley area, including Besthorpe GP (Wright, S. and Osborne, J.) and from Broadholme (Gray, M.) on the county border with Lincolnshire. Our thanks go to Martin, for once again providing us the accompanying photograph.

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.
