In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight closely associated with Scots Pine, and fairly common in the county. Wingspan 27-33 mm. The genus Dioryctria contains four closely related species in Britain, which require close examination to separate: D. abietella is most likely to be confused with D. sylvestrella, which see for a description of the differences. Larva feeds within young shoots of Scots Pine, Norway Spruce and European Larch.
