The Scarce Silver-lines (Bena bicolorana) is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It is found in Europe.

The wingspan is 40-50 mm. The moth flies in one generation from mid June to August. This species is similar to the smaller Green Silver-lines, though it only has two silver-white lines running across the forewing. The majority of the insect is bright green, and unlike the Green Silver-lines, this species doesn't have a red outer edge.

The larvae feed on oak.
