Microcolona polygethes is a moth in the Elachistidae family. It was described by Turner in 1939. It is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from Tasmania.

The wingspan is about 10 mm. The forewings are grey suffused with pale ochreous, except on the costal margin. The markings are black, consisting of a minute dot on the fold near the base. The first discal is white-edged, and the plical is beneath it. A larger, second discal is crescentic or double and there is a series of minute dots on the apical third of the costa and on the termen. The hindwings are grey.
