Agonopterix ciliella is a moth of the Depressariidae family. It is found in most of Europe, except the Iberian Peninsula, most of the Balkan Peninsula and the Benelux.[1] It is also found in North America.[2]

The wingspan is 19–24 mm. Adults are on wing from August to May.

The larvae feed on various umbelliferous plants, including Angelica sylvestris, Aegopodium podagraria, Heracleum sphondylium, Daucus, Selinum, Silaum, Chaerophyllum, Pastinaca, Anthriscus, Meum and Peucedanum palustre. They feed from within spun or rolled leaves. Larvae can be found from June to September.[3] The species overwinters as an adult.[4]
