Pammene ochsenheimeriana

(Lienig & Zeller, 1846)

Winsgpan c. 8-11mm.

This rather scarce species occurs in parts of England and southern Scotland, occupying coniferous woodland.

The life history in Britain is not well-described in the literature but it is associated with giant fir (Abies grandis), Norway spruce (Picea abies), and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris).

Adult moths are on the wing in May and June and fly in the afternoon.
