Status and distribution in Luxembourg

Distribution map of Cameraria ohridella Deschka & Dimić, 1986 in Luxembourg. Data source: Recorder-Lux, iNaturalist & GBIF, 2019-12-13.

Nico Schneider observed and documented occurrences of the horse-chestnut leaf miner in 2003 in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg (Schneider 2003).

12 occurrences of the species are listed in the Recorder database ranging from 2007 to 2017.

Cameraria ohridella causes significant damage, mainly late summer browning, to the appearance of horse-chestnut trees. Despite the poor appearance of these infested trees, there is no evidence that damage by the moth leads to tree death.
