Coleophora pulmonariella is a moth of the family Coleophoridae. It is found from Sweden and northern Russia to the Pyrenees and Italy, and from France to Romania.

The larvae feed on Myosotis palustris, Myosotis sylvatica, Pulmonaria mollissima, Pulmonaria obscura, Pulmonaria officinalis, Symphytum officinale and Symphytum tuberosum. They create a slender, dark brown, tubular, composite leaf case. The frontal part is somewhat hairy, while the rest of the case is bare. The mouth angle is about 45°.[2] Larvae can be found from autumn to June of the following year.
