Acleris schalleriana, the viburnum button or Schaller's acleris moth, is a moth of the Tortricidae family. It was described by Carl Linnaeus in 1761. It is found most of Europe and is also found in North America.[3]

The wingspan is 15–20 mm.[4] Adults are on wing from August to October, they overwinter and reappear the following spring.[5]

The larvae feed on Viburnum species, including Viburnum lantana and Viburnum opulus. They twist a leaf to form a pocket and feeds from within.[6]
