Ardozyga crypsicneca 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 fuscous with two white but fuscous-irrorated fasciae. The first from one-fourth of the costa, slightly outwardly oblique, moderately broad, ending abruptly just across the fold, the second from three-fourth of the costa, broad on the costa, narrowing towards the tornus, indented near the middle posteriorly, its outer edge suffused with pale yellowish. The discal dots are dark fuscous, the first at one-third on the posterior edge of the first fascia, the second before two-thirds on the anterior edge of the second fascia, the plical on the posterior edge of the first fascia slightly beyond the first discal. The hindwings are grey.
