Choristoneura rosaceana, the oblique banded leaf roller or rosaceous leaf roller, is a moth of the family Tortricidae. It is native to North America, but has been accidentally introduced into other parts of the world.

The wingspan is 7.5–11 mm for males and 11.5–14 mm for females. Adults are on wing from June to July and again from August to September in most of its range.


The caterpillar is green with a black head. The adult is a small, light brown moth.

Symptoms and signs

The presence of the species is suggested by rolled, tied and chewed leaves and minor feeding damage on fruits. Damage can be extensive on rosaceous plants.
