Nannoarctia integra, described by Francis Walker in 1855, is an endemic species of moth in the family Erebidae from the Philippines. The species is often confused with N. takanoi (Sonan, 1934) (=integra Matsumura, 1931) from Taiwan.

The forewings are dark brown with a wide and unbroken oblique light fascia running from the wingbase to the apex. The male is characterized by yellowish-white hindwings with a dark costal margin, and a small discal and two marginal spots mainly at the apex and tornus. In females, these spots are bright yellow and larger.
