Habrona brunnea is a moth in the Drepanidae family. It is found in New Guinea and on the Moluccas. The habitat consists of mountainous areas.

The wingspan is 50-54 mm. The forewings are rich sepia-brown, with a pale chestnut basal line strongly angled in the fold. There is a trace of a very short similar line at the extreme base, a trace of twin dark median lines somewhat angled outwardly and a series of four finely waved outwardly angled postmedian lines. There is also a paler brown wedge-shaped apical patch and a pale chestnut or creamy patch at the tornus, intersected with a tridentate short dash. The termen has paler darkly edged dashes and there are two dark spots in the cells. The hindwings are ochreous grey and pale at the base.
