Callopistria repleta is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found in India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo.

The forewings are contrastingly patterned in white, rufous, dark brown and grey with a mauvish tinge.

The larvae feed on ferns. They are bright green with a series of transverse black bars edged in yellow. Pupation takes place in a slight, earth-covered cocoon on the soil surface.[2]
