of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Dioryctria schuetzeella Fuchs, 1899

A widespread, but local and rather rare species in Belgium. Before 1980, it was only known from a few localities in the south of the country. Later it became known all over the territory.

The larvae live between needles of Picea abies spun together.

The adults have been observed from June till early August. They come to light.
