Centropseustis is a monotypic genus of moths of the family Crambidae. It contains only one species, Centropseustis astrapora, which is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from New South Wales.[2]

The wingspan is 21–25 mm. The forewings are light brownish-ochreous, but the costa is more brownish anteriorly. There is a cloudy white spot in the disc near the base, margined by a short blackish dash beneath. The hindwings are deep yellow with a fuscous band on the hindmargin.

The larvae feed on Melaleuca genistifolia. They are gregarious and feed from within a large nest of webbing. The larvae are reddish-ochreous on the back and ochreous-whitish on the sides. The head is dull brownish-ochreous.[3]
