Bucculatrix canariensis is a moth of the Bucculatricidae family. It is found on the Canary Islands.

The wingspan is 7–8 mm. The forewings are whitish, sprinkled with greyish fuscous and some blackish scaling. The hindwings are shining pale stone-grey.

The larvae feed on Artemisia thuscula. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The young larvae create a rather straight corridor that is almost completely filled with frass. Older larvae live freely, creating fleck mines. The larvae can be found from March to April.
