The pandanus flower moth (Anatrachyntis incertulella) is a small cosmet moth species (family Cosmopterigidae). It belongs to subfamily Cosmopteriginae. This was the first "micromoth" species to be described from Hawaiʻi. The type specimens were collected there by the 1820s Beechey expedition and described by the English entomologist Francis Walker in 1864; they are now in the British Museum of Natural History. The caterpillar larvae feed on Pandanus species, including Pandanus tectorius.

The type specimens were collected there by the 1820s Beechey expedition and described by the English entomologist Francis Walker in 1864; they are now in the British Museum of Natural History. It is found mainly in Polynesia, from the Hawaiian Islands across the Society and Marquesas Islands to the Austral Islands and Pitcairn Island. It has also been recorded on Fiji, in Queensland (and maybe elsewhere in Australia), on Okinawa and on Rodrigues; except the first locality, these seem to be fairly recent introductions or accidental finds however. The caterpillar larvae feed on Pandanus species, including Pandanus tectorius. (en)
