.....One of a difficult group to
identify that requires dissection, there are just three
recent records of this moth in Nottinghamshire. The
latest record involves the moth below, which was trapped
and photographed by Phil Lee at Misterton in August 2017
and confirmed by gen det by Martin Gray. Previous
Nottinghamshire records includes singles at Hollinwell
Golf Course in 2007 (Wright,
S. & Osborne, J.) and
Misterton Soss in 2010 (Wright,
S. & Osborne, J.).
We are especially grateful to Phil, for allowing us to
use his photograph on the website.
