Syllepte macarealis is a moth in the Crambidae family. It was described by Schaus in 1927. It is found in the Philippines (Mindanao).

The wingspan is about 31 mm. The wings are buffy brown with fine, black lines. There is a fine pale line at the base of the cilia which are concolorous with the wing. The forewings have an antemedial line which is hardly perceptible, slightly outcurved from the subcostal area. There is also an oblique line on the discocellular, and a postmedial line which is gently outcurved, macular from the costa to vein 2, angled and slightly inbent to the inner margin. The point at the angle is more heavily marked. The hindwings have a macular postmedial line which is slightly outcurved.
