Schinia bina, or the Bina Flower Moth, is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found from Mexico City to central Florida, and as far north as Canada.[1]

Schinia meskeana is probably a valid species, but remains a synonym until a revision has been published.

The wingspan is about 11 mm. There is one geration per year.

The larvae feed on Verbesina encilioides, Gaillardia pulchella, and hawkweed species.
