Perigonia lefebvraei is a moth of the family Sphingidae. It is known from Cuba and the Dominican Republic.[2]

It is similar to Perigonia lusca lusca, but smaller and the forewing upperside antemedian band is vestigial or absent and the posterior half of the hindwing upperside is more uniformly grey-brown.

The larvae have been recorded feeding on Ferdinandusa angustata and Guettarda species.
