The Black-banded (Polymixis xanthomista) is a species of moth in the Noctuidae family.

This species is classed as Nationally Scarce A, and is restricted to coastal grasslands in south-west England, west Wales, Isle of Man, and some parts of Ireland. Similar to species such as the Feathered Ranunculus, this species is duller, with a black-grey band which gives the species it's name.
