Glyphidocera lophandra is a moth in the Autostichidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1929. It is found in Brazil and Peru.

The wingspan is 10-11 mm. The forewings are pale ochreous irregularly irrorated fuscous and dark fuscous, posteriorly tending to form suffused streaks between the veins. There is a small elongate dark fuscous spot in the disc at one-fifth. The stigmata form small elongate dark fuscous spots, the plical obliquely before the first discal, sometimes a smaller similar spot on the fold beneath the middle of the wing. There is a marginal series of small dark fuscous spots around the apical part of the costa and termen. The hindwings are whitish-grey, more whitish anteriorly.
