Ectoedemia heringella (Mariani, 1839)  
Status .....It is uncertain whether Ectoedemia heringella had been recorded in Nottinghamshire, previous to the finding of several leaf mines on Holm Oak at Colwick Country Park in June 2020 and at Nottingham University's Jubilee Campus in July 2020. It is a moth which is currently extending its range, after being recorded for the first time in the UK at London in 2002 and trees soon become heavily infested with leaf mines.
