Pristiphora (Pristiphora) cincta Newman, 1837 

Nematus quercus  (Hartig, 1837, Nematus  )

Distribution

Notes

Possibly two British species occur under this name: one mainly in the lowlands with hostplant Betula  , the other montane with host Vaccinium  . Whilst Pristiphora cincta  seems to be the correct name for the more brightly coloured lowland taxon, until a revision is made of the numerous supposed synonyms of Pristiphora cincta  , the name for the species on Vaccinium  is unclear.
