70.146 .... B&F 1813
Haworth's Pug Eupithecia haworthiata (Doubleday, 1856)  
Status .....Certainly one of Nottinghamshire's rarest Pugs, with only two recent records including singles at MV light traps operated at Beacon Hill Road in Newark on July 3rd 2009 (Wright, S. Osborne, J. and Atkinson, D.R.) and at Broadholme on June 6th 2014 (Gray, M.).

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.
