Carposina viduana is a moth in the Carposinidae family. It was described by Caradja in 1916. It is found in Russia (Khabarovskii krai, Primorskii krai).

The wingspan is 15–19 mm. The basal part, costal margin and distal third of the forewings are almost black. The pattern consists of five small concolorous costal spots and a large white trapezoidal spot and a black dot on the anal fold.


This species was considered as form of Carposina sasakii by Diakonoff in 1989, but reinstated as a species in 2009.[1]
