Acleris variana, the eastern blackheaded budworm, is a moth of the Tortricidae family. It is found in Newfoundland and Cape Breton Island and the northeast United States, across the coniferous forest region of Canada, presumably to Saskatchewan or eastern Alberta.

The larvae mainly feed on Abies balsamea and Picea glauca.
