Fania connectus is a species of moth of the Cossidae family. It is found in Texas in the United States.[2]

The wingspan is about 30 mm. The basal half of the forewings is light smoky brown and the outer half is paler and tinged with silvery white. There are numerous deep black transverse streaks besides two rather prominent postmedian irregular lines, connected together in the fold by a black streak. The hindwings are paler with only traces of reticulation (a net-like pattern).[3] Adults are on wing from April to May and again in fall.[4]
