Chionodes tragicella (Heyden, 1865)
The larva lives in a silken tube under scales of bark on old larch trees and, from that shelter, searches out nearby leaves on which it feeds. The entrance to its tunnel is often betrayed by the presence of a few dead needles.
The larva hibernates in dense cocoon under scales of bark.
