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.

Ocnerostoma friesei

Svensson, 1966


Wingspan 8-10 mm.

The males and females of this moth have different colourations. The males have pale grey forewings and those of the female are white.

This is a species found associated with scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and has been confused with another pine-feeding species, Ocnerostoma piniariella. Separation of these two is by dissection.

The species is bi- or trivoltine, with flight periods in March to May, August and sometimes November.
