Endothenia nigricostana, the black-edged marble, is a moth of the family Tortricidae. It was described by Adrian Hardy Haworth in 1811. It is found from most of Europe,[2] east to Japan. The habitat consists of woodland margins and embankments.

The wingspan is 11–15 mm.[3] Adults are on wing from May to July.

The larvae feed on Stachys palustris, Stachys silvatica, and Lamium species.[4] They eat down from the flower into the stem and roots.[5]
