Cedestis subfasciella: 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 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.
