''Comocrus'' is a monotypic moth genus in the family Noctuidae erected by Karl Jordan in 1896. Its only species, ''Comocrus behri'', the mistletoe moth or mistletoe day moth, was first described by George French Angas in 1847. It is widely distributed in southern Australia from Perth to Melbourne and adjacent to Bass Strait, occurring as far north as Derby, Western Australia, and Clermont and Rockhampton in Queensland.
