Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.180 [B&F: 1079] Piniphila bifasciana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Local, in pine woodland, throughout much of Britain and southern Ireland. In Hampshire, locally common in pinewoods, especially on Scots Pine in the south of the county; also on Maritime Pine, a species that is locally common along the coast. Very few records from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-16mm. The comparatively rounded forewing, relatively straight-edged basal patch and well-defined, broad, almost parallel-sided median fascia, together with the pale ochreous general coloration, often tinged with pinkish, are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Scots Pine and Maritime Pine, living within a silken gallery amongst the young shoots and male plants.
