Ardozyga chionoprora is a species of moth in the family Gelechiidae. It was described by Turner in 1927. It is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from Tasmania.

The wingspan is about 20 mm. The forewings are whitish-brown partly suffused with fuscous-brown and with four oblique dark-fuscous streaks from the costa. The first at the base, very short, the second sub-basal, the third from one-third and the fourth from the middle, prolonged subcostally by a very fine dark-fuscous line to the apex. There is a fine blackish line along the fold to the middle, with some fuscous suffusion on its dorsal side. There is also a short longitudinal blackish discal streak beyond the middle and a subterminal blackish line. The hindwings are grey.
