Anatrachyntis badia is a species of moth in the Cosmopterigidae family.

This small moth is different from other British members of this family, most closely resembling Cosmopterix lienigiella, but A. badia is pale brown with white and black markings. This very small moth is native to North America, and first discovered in 2001 in Britain. It appears that this species is now resident in Europe.
