Thymiatris microloga is a moth in the family Xyloryctidae. It was described by Alexey Diakonoff in 1966. It is found on Java. [1]

The wingspan is 37–41 mm. The forewings are pure white, dusted coarsely throughout with dark fuscous grey and with a continuous streak of the same colour along the costa, narrowed in the middle, confluent with a similar but narrower irregular streak along the upper edge of the cell. The veins above and beyond cell, as far as vein 2, are narrowly streaked with the same colour, as also is the discoidal vein. There is sometimes an inwardly-oblique series of short darker streaks along the veins, this series runs from the costa before the apex to the dorsum well before the tornus. A series of rather large pale ochreous spots is found on the ends of veins 3 to 9, becoming smaller on both ends of the series, surrounded by brownish-ferruginous scales. The hindwings are glossy ochreous grey, along the upper part of the termen and in the apex narrowly pale ochreous strewn with dark brown. [2]
