Glyphodes lupinalis is a moth in the Crambidae family. It was described by Schaus in 1927. It is found in the Philippines (Luzon).

The wingspan is about 25 mm. The wings are silky dark vinaceous drab, the forewings with an oblique white fascia from the subcostal, narrowing at the submedian, expanding below the submedian into a small triangular spot. There is a postmedial oval white spot from below the costal edge to vein 2 and a fine white postmedial line expanding on the costal edge. Both the antemedial fascia and postmedial spot are edged with dusky drab. The hindwings are white on the basal half with a dusky drab streak on the discocellular and a postmedial white line from the costa to the termen close to the anal angle, broadly edged inwardly with dusky drab. There is a dusky drab line along the inner margin from the base to the anal angle.
