Neosphaleroptera is a genus of moths belonging to the subfamily Tortricinae of the family Tortricidae.[2] It contains only one species, Neosphaleroptera nubilana, which is found in almost all of Europe and the Near East.

The wingspan is 12–14 mm. Adults are on wing from June to July.[3]

The larvae feed on Crataegus, Prunus and Pyrus species. They spin together the leaves of their host plant and feed from within.[4]
