The Cabbage Cluster Caterpillar (Crocidolomia pavonana) is a moth of the Crambidae family. It is found from South Africa through India to the Pacific, including Australia, the Cook Islands, Guam, Java and Réunion.
The wingspan is about 30 millimetres (1.2 in).
The larvae feed on Brassicaceae species and are considered an agricultural pest on cabbages. At first, they feed only on the undersides of the leaves. Later they feed on the rest of the leaves and central shoot.
