Mustilia fusca is a moth in the Endromidae family. It is found in Taiwan.[1]

The larvae feed on the leaves of Trochodendron aralioides. They have a greenish brown body and head. They reach a length of 45 mm when full-grown.[2] Pupation takes place in a black, rough and rugose pupa, enclosed in a thin cocoon of brown silk spun among the leaves of the host plant.
