Cedestis gysseleniella is a moth of the family Yponomeutidae. It is found in Europe[1] and parts of Russia.[3]

The wingspan is 11–13 mm.[4] Adults are on wing from June to July[1][4] depending on the location.[citation needed]

The larvae feed on Abies alba,[1] Abies fabri,[3] Pinus mugo,[1] Pinus sylvestris,[1][4] Pinus tabuliformis,[3] and Pinus contorta.[2] Although Vaccinium myrtillus has been listed as host plant in Gershenson and Ulenberg 1998,[1] this listing is considered "suspicious" by the more recently published Lewis and Sohn 2015.[3]
