Aphelia viburnana, the bilberry tortrix, is a moth of the family Tortricidae. It is found in Europe, from Portugal and Great Britain to the Ural Mountains, Siberia and Mongolia, further east to the Russian Far East (Primorsk and the Kuril Islands).[2]

The length of the forewings is about 11 mm. The moth flies from June to September in western Europe.

The larvae feed on Vaccinium and Ericaceae, but also Salix species.
