Kertomesis palacta is a moth in the Autostichidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1911. It is found in India.
The wingspan is about 13 mm. The forewings are whitish-ochreous irregularly sprinkled with dark brown and with an elongate black mark along the base of the costa and a transverse blackish spot from the dorsum near the base. The first discal stigma is dot-like and black, the second represented by a roundish black spot resting on a transverse-oblong blackish dorsal blotch. There is a moderate semi-circular blackish spot on the costa rather beyond this and a row of cloudy blackish dots around the apical portion of the costa and termen. The hindwings are grey.
