Glyphidocera brocha is a moth in the Autostichidae family. It was described by Adamski and Brown in 2001. It is found in Venezuela.

The length of the forewings is 4.9 mm. The forewing colour consists of mostly brownish orange intermixed with some brown scales. There are two brown discal spots, one near the base and one near the apical end. There is one brown spot basad to the spot near the base of the cell and the marginal scales are brown. The hindwings are pale brown, except the area between the cubitus and inner margin with elongate pale yellow scales.

Etymology

The species name refers to the dentitions on the dorsal margin of the valva and is derived from Latin brochus (meaning projecting teeth).
