Asterivora colpota is a moth in the family Choreutidae. It is known from New Zealand. The wingspan is about 13 mm. The head and thorax are dark bronzy-fuscous sprinkled with whitish. The antennae are black ringed with white. The abdomen is blackish-fuscous, although the segmental margins are brownish. The dark bronzy-fuscous forewings are elongate and rather oblique, rather dilated posteriorly, the costa slightly is arched, the apex obtuse and the termen bowed. The basal and terminal areas are finely sprinkled with whitish and there are two parallel rather curved irregular transverse lines of whitish irroration about two-fifth and a transverse line of whitish irroration from a white mark on the costa at three-fifth. There is also a transverse linear mark of whitish irroration terminated beneath by a white dot and a thick subterminal shade of whitish irroration, somewhat interrupted above the middle. The hindwings are dark grey, although the terminal half is blackish. Here, two parallel lines of whitish irroration are found, running towards the termen on the lower half.
