Grapholita janthinana, the hawthorn leafroller, is a moth of the family Tortricidae. It was described by Philogène Auguste Joseph Duponchel in 1843. It is found in most of Europe, except most of the Balkan Peninsula, Ukraine, Lithuania and Estonia. The habitat consists of hedgerows, gardens and woodland edges.[3]

The wingspan is 9–11 mm.[4] Adults are on wing from May to early August in one generation per year.[5]

The larvae feed on Crataegus, Prunus and Sorbus species. When feeding on Crataegus, they feed within the berries, spinning two or three together with silk. The species overwinters in a cocoon before pupating.[6]
