Cochylis roseana is a moth of the family Tortricidae. It is found in most of Europe (except Ireland, Fennoscandia, the Baltic region, Portugal and Greece), Uralsk, Iran, Asia Minor and China (Gansu).

The wingspan is 10–17 millimetres (0.39–0.67 in). Adults are on wing from late May to August.

The larvae feed on Dipsacus sylvestris, Chrysocoma and Solidago. They live in a silk tunnel bored through the sides of several seeds of the host plant. Larvae can be found from August to May.[3]
