Taygete critica is a moth in the Autostichidae family. It was described by Walsingham in 1910. It is found in Mexico (Guerrero).

The wingspan is about 9 mm. The forewings are creamy ochreous, becoming more ochreous towards the apex, the costa blackish from the base to beyond the middle and profusely dusted with black towards the apex. A black dusted patch crosses the fold beyond its middle, not reaching the dorsum, and beyond this the apical portion of the wing is profusely dusted with black intermixed with whitish scales along the lines of the nervules. The hindwings are pale grey.
