Ypsolopha lucella (Fabricius, 1775)  
Status .....Appears to be a rather rare moth in Nottinghamshire, purely based on the apparent lack of records. We know of just the one recent record, concerning one attracted to MV light at Broadholme in 2013, on the Nottinghamshire border with neighbouring Lincolnshire.

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. However, micromoth records from Broadholme are officially recognised by both the county micromoth recorder and Butterfly Conservation, as being genuine Nottinghamshire records.
