Apotomops spomotopa is a species of moth of the Tortricidae family that is endemic to Peru.

The length of the forewings is about 7.5 millimetres (0.30 in) for males and about 10 millimetres (0.39 in) for females. The ground colour of the forewings is white, mottled with grey overscaling distally. The hindwings are white, but pale beige in the apical region.

Etymology[edit]

The species name is the genus name spelled backwards, creating a palindrome.[2]
