The Barred Hook-tip (Watsonalla cultraria) is a species of moth in the Drepanidae family.
This medium sized moth is one of the smaller members of Britain's Drepanidae species. Most similar to the Oak Hook-tip, this species is orange in colour, with a slightly darker crossbar running across the wings. On the forewing is a small dot in the crossbar. Like most members of the Drepanidae, this species has a strongly hooked forewing, which is it's namesake.
