Cedestis subfasciella

(Stephens, 1834)


Wingspan 9-11 mm.

A species associated with coniferous woodland, in particular pine (Pinus), the foodplant of the larva, which feeds internally on the needles.

The adult moths have quite a long emergence period, from March until July, when they can be attracted to light.

Fairly well distributed throughout Britain, though less common in the north and west.
