Cedestis gysseleniella: Distribution map

Please note that the NBN Gateway map service has been terminated as of 1 April 2017.

As soon as a replacement map service is available, distribution maps will hopefully appear here again.

In the meantime, you can get some idea of distribution from the NBN Atlas website.

Cedestis gysseleniella

Zeller, 1839

Wingspan 11-13 mm.

A widespread but local species occurring over much of England and Scotland in its favoured habitat, pine woodland.

The adults fly in June and July, when they can be attracted to light.

The larva feeds in spring internally in a needle of pine (Pinus sylvestris), working its way from the base to the tip. It may then feed externally in a slight web.
