    The moth Zoppesmur, also moth Zobbesmur (= Zobbes walls) or castle Leysiefen, is an early to high medieval tower mound (moth) in Leichlinger district Leysiefen on the left bank of the Wupper in Bergisches Land (NRW). From the plant only soil dislocations and remains of masonry have been preserved.

    The ruin of the moth is located near the farm Leysiefen 200 meters from the left bank of the Wupper at the foot of the Wupperberg. The castle hill of about 50 m base diameter and about 8 m height was created on a slope sloping down to Wupper. A ring wall surrounded the castle hill, supported by a strong wall to the valley side.
