Graphania plena is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It was first described by Francis Walker in 1865 from specimens obtained in Auckland. It is endemic to New Zealand. The larvae have been recorded feeding on apples. In 2019 Robert J. B. Hoare published a paper in which he undertook a major review of New Zealand noctuids. Hoare, having inspected the type specimens of this species, placed it within the genus Ichneutica.
