Orthocomotis is a genus of moths belonging to the family Tortricidae.


Orthocomotis was initially classified as a member of the tribe Euliini. Then, based on genital morphology, it was moved to the tribe Polyorthini. Recent research has revealed that Orthocomotis should be transferred back into the tribe Euliini.
