Carpatolechia notatella, the sallow-leaf groundling, is a moth of the family Gelechiidae. It is found in most of Europe (except the Iberian Peninsula and most of the Balkan Peninsula)[1] and Turkey.[2]

The wingspan is 12–16 mm. Adults have been recorded on wing from May to June.[3]

The larvae feed on Salix species (including Salix caprea, Salix aurita, Salix petrandra, Salix cinerea, Salix repens and Salix alba).[4] They feed on the parenchyma on the underside of the leaves. Larvae can be found from August to September.
