Pseudopostega longifurcata is a moth of the family Opostegidae. It was described by Donald R. Davis and Jonas R. Stonis, 2007.[1] It is known from Jamaica and Ecuador.

The length of the forewings is 2.5–4 mm. Adults have been recorded in January (in Ecuador) and April (in Jamaica)


The species name is derived from the Latin longus (meaning long) and furcatus (meaning forked), in reference to the deeply furcate apex of the male gnathos.
