A new species of owlet moth, Meropleon linae (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) from Kansas, is described and illustrated. Meropleon linae is distinguished from other species of Meropleon by forewing color and pattern, shape of thevalva, and structure of the aedoeagus. Meropleon linae is most similar morphologically to M. cinnamicolor Ferguson. New distribution records for M. ambifuscum (Newman) and the first record for M. titan Todd in Kansas are given.
