''Alucita montana'', the Montana six-plume moth, is a moth of the family Alucitidae. It was described by William Barnes and Arthur Ward Lindsey in 1921. It is found in North America from south-western Quebec and Vermont, west to British Columbia and south to Arizona, California and Texas.

The wingspan is 11–16 mm. The forewings are crossed by a wide median band, margined narrowly with white, which forks on the first two lobes. There is another band nearer the base on the first lobe.. more
