The Pink-washed Looper (Enigmogramma basigera) is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found in eastern and central United States, south to Mexico. Outside of North America it is found in the Caribbean (including Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Kitts and Montserrat), south to French Guyana.

The wingspan is about 28-33 mm. Adults are on wing from June to September.

Only two larvae are known, and these were reared on Hydrocotyle umbellata.
