Coleophora ramosella is a moth of the family Coleophoridae. It is found from Fennoscandia to the Pyrenees, Italy and Hungary and from Ireland to Slovakia. It is also found in southern Russia.

The wingspan is 10–12 mm.[2] Coleophora ramosella is characterised by white lines on a yellowish-ochre ground colour.Only reliably identified by dissection and microscopic examination of the genitalia.

The larvae feed on Aster amellus, Aster linosyris, Bellis perennis, Hieracium and Solidago virgaurea. They create a tubular, silken case of about 9 mm long. It is trivalved and has a mouth angle of about 20°.[3] Full-grown larvae can be found in June.
