Nippoptilia cinctipedalis is a moth of the Pterophoridae family. It is found in Australia, Korea, Japan (Kyushu), China, Micronesia, the Republic of Palau and Vietnam.
The wingspan is 8–9 millimetres (0.31–0.35 in) and the length of the forewings is 5–6 millimetres (0.20–0.24 in). Adults emerge in September and October in Japan.
The larvae feed on Cayratia japonica. They bite the flower-bud and flower of the host plant and usually pupate on the tendril, or rarely on the pedicel. The pupal stage lasts for 7–8 days. The eggs are laid on the flower-bud.
