The Shining Marbled (Pseudeustrotia candidula) is a moth in the Noctuidae family.


A small macro moth, this species could easily be overlooked as a tortrix. The forewign is a silver-white, with a dark blue triangular patch from the costa. The thorax has a dark dot. Sometimes the dark triangle is brown, and a brown blotch is often near the thorax on the forewing.


Native of central Europe, this species has one record for Britain, which although was near where plants are imported, was at a time of high immigration, so it is possible this was a genuine immigrant.
