Xestia praevia is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found in Canada south to California. It is part of the elimata species group. Three of the species in this group have no significant difference in both genitals and DNA, suggesting they may be in fact one species. This wingspan is about 32 mm. The moth flies from July to August depending on the location. The larva feed on Pinus ponderosa.
