Aristotelia citrocosma is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1908. It is found in India (Assam) and Sri Lanka.

The wingspan is 7-9 mm. The forewings are fuscous, darker irrorated and with brassy-yellow markings. There is a very oblique fascia near the base and a thick streak running from one-fourth of the costa to near the dorsum about the middle, then curved upwards to the disc beyond the middle, again angulated downwards to the tornus and continued along the termen to the apex. There is also an oblique strigula on the costa beyond the origin of this, and another at three-fourths. The hindwings are grey, thinly scaled in the disc.
