Epermenia pseudofuscomaculata is a moth of the Epermeniidae family. It is endemic to Kyushu, Japan.[1]

The length of the forewings is 4–5 millimetres (0.16–0.20 in). As the species name suggests, it is similar to Epermenia fuscomaculata, but the forewings are a little darker, especially on the apical area. The fasciae are reddish brown.
