Agriophara nodigera is a moth of the Depressariidae family. It is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from Queensland.[1]

The wingspan is about 18 mm. The forewings are whitish, densely irrorated with dark fuscous and with roundish raised tufts of blackish scales and three in a line from beneath the costa at one-sixth to above the inner-margin at one-third, three or four in an oblique line from the costa at one-third to above the middle of the inner-margin. Just outside this is an ochreous-brown spot in the disc before the middle and there is a more obscure curved line of raised dots from the costa at one-half to above and before the anal angle. Just beyond this is an ochreous-brown spot in the disc at two-thirds and there is a very obscure series of dots parallel to the hindmargin, not raised. The hindwings are fuscous-grey.[2]
