73.200 .... B&F 2235
Tawny Pinion Lithophane semibrunnea (Haworth, 1809)
Status .....Rare in Nottinghamshire, with just nine records since 2000, but the frequency of records has increased in recent years. However, the larvae of Tawny Pinion feed on Ash, so it may be that if the fungal infection leading to Ash dieback becomes widespread, there may be fewer records of this moth in a few years time. Our thanks go to Phil Lee, who once again supplied us with the photograph below.
