Torodora octavana is a moth in the Lecithoceridae family. It is found in Taiwan, India, and Sichuan, Kwanhsien and Zhejiang in China.[2]

The wingspan is 22–23 mm. The forewings are brown, sprinkled with dark fuscous, with a strong purplish gloss. The costal edge is ochreous-orange and the plical and first discal stigmata are indicated by two very obscure somewhat lighter ochreous-brown spots, the second discal by a similar 8-shaped spot centered with two dark fuscous dots. There is an obscure ochreous-brown subterminal line, the central third somewhat curved outwards. There is also an interrupted blackish terminal line. The hindwings are grey.[3]
