Exoletuncus unguiculus is a species of moth of the Tortricidae family. It is found in Peru.

The wingspan is 23 mm. The ground colour of the forewings is reduced to yellowish-white lines extending from the dorsum to the costa. The hindwings are greyish cream in the posterior half, diffusely spotted brownish grey.


The species name refers to the shape of the sacculus and is derived from Latin unguiculus (meaning a small claw).[2]
