62.028 .... B&F 1454
Dioryctria abietella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....There are few Nottinghamshire records of this moth, which is one of four diffcult to identify species. All four are similarly marked and coloured, so identification is really reliant on dissection. Occurs in areas of commercial Pine forestry, with records from the north of the county only so far.
