Tomotilus celebratus is a moth of the family Pterophoridae. It has been reported from Australia, India, Japan (including Honshu) and Indonesia (Java). [1] Until recently the species was known as Tomotilus saitoi, but the earlier name Oxyptilus celebratus has been recognised as an earlier reference to this same species. [2]

The length of the forewings is 6–8 mm.

The larvae feed on Dunbaria villosa . They live in a tent-like structure formed by a folded ternate leaf of the host plant and eats the folded leaf from inside. Pupation usually occurs within this shelter. The pupal period lasts 4–6 days.
