Electraglaia nigrapex is a moth of the Tortricidae family which is endemic to Vietnam.[1]

The wingspan is 15.5 millimetres (0.61 in). The ground colour of the forewings is cream mixed with brownish. The base and dorsum are suffused with greyish. The hindwings are grey-brown.


The specific name refers to the colouration of the forewing apex and is derived from Latin niger (meaning black).
