Loxostege sticticalis (Linnaeus, 1761)
Status .....A rare migrant inland with two Nottinghamshire records. The first was trapped at by Martin Gray at Broadholme, on the Nottinghamshire border with neighbouring Lincolnshire on August 22nd 2003, and the other came from Elkesley, where it was trapped by Paul Coombes on July 30th 2019.

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.
