Coptotriche longiciliatella is a moth of the family Tischeriidae. It is found on the Canary Islands.

The wingspan is about 7 mm.[2]

The larvae feed on Rubus ulmifolius. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine has the form of an elongated upper-surface blotch. Pupation takes place within the mine.[3] Larvae can be found from autumn to April.
