Ocnerostoma piniariella
White Pine Ermine

(Zeller, 1847)16.023/444
Norfolk status
Rare, uncertain.
Conifer plantations.

Distribution is incompletely known due to confusion with the very similar O. friesei.

There is very little to separate this species from Ocnerostoma friesei. Attention should be paid to the antenna, which is ringed white and pale grey in the male and white in the female.
