Fletcherana insularis is a moth of the family Geometridae. It is endemic to Maui. It has been found above the forest belt, high up on Haleakala.

It is a variable species in size, color and pattern. It might be confused with Eupithecia monticolans which it somewhat resembles in color and markings, but the wing shape and course of the medial band and other markings are distinct.
