Cryptolechia percnocoma is a moth in the Depressariidae family. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1930. It is found in Brazil.

The wingspan is about 15 mm. The forewings are whitish-ochreous with an undefined cloud of light grey suffusion extending over the median third on the costal half and continued much narrower to the dorsum before the middle, a similar cloud forming a marginal band around the apex and the termen. The plical and first discal stigmata are small and blackish and the plical is rather posterior. There is an irregular angulated series of small blackish dots forming the anterior limit of the terminal band and there are five marginal interneural dots between veins three and eight, slightly separated with whitish. The hindwings are pale grey.
