Antigastria catalaunalis is a small moth in the family Crambidae. The species is hard to find as the moths rest upside down and the pattern on the underside matches the mesh of dried grasses where they live. Occasionally they rest on broad leaves and are fairly visible. This species is very common in Buskett.

The specimen shown above was identified by Paolo Mazzei.
