''Epicephala laeviclada'' is a moth of the Gracillariidae family. It is found in China (Guangxi and Hainan).
The length of the forewings is 5−7.5 mm. The forewings are brown to dark brown with three white striae from the costal 1/4, 1/3 and 2/5 extending obliquely outward to 1/3 the width of the forewing. The dorsum has a broad white band along the basal 1/3, serrated on the upper edge, distally with a stria extending obliquely outward to the middle of the cell, with a small triangular white spot and an obliquely outward stria at the middle and before 5/6. There is a narrow silvery-white fascia with metallic reflection from the costal 5/6 to the dorsum and the distal 1/6 is ochreous, with a central black spot edged by a white dot near the costa and a white band along the dorsum. The hindwings are greyish brown.
The larva feeds on seeds in the fruit of ''Phyllanthus microcarpus''.
The species name refers to individuals of the host-plant having glabrous branches and is derived from Latin ''laevis'' (meaning smooth) and ''cladus'' (meaning branch).〔, 2015: Three new species of ''Epicephala'' Meyrick (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae) associated with Phyllanthus microcarpus (Benth.)
