Paranthozela is a genus of moths originally placed in the tribe Enarmoniini of the subfamily Olethreutinae.[1] However, some regard it as an unplaced genus within the family Tortricidae.[2]

The genus is contained within Ecuador. The moths live in forest habitats from 1,000–3,000 m (3,300–9,800 ft) above sea level. Paranthozela species have been found on both sides of the Andes.[1]
