Kauaiina ioxantha is a moth of the family Geometridae. It is endemic to Kauai.

It has a large amount of orange and yellow scaling. This scaling is flat over the entire face, and it is not drawn out into a peak or erected in front as it is on the other species of the Fletcherana genus, to which it was formerly assigned.
