Gnorimoschema debenedictisi is a moth in the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Powell and Povolný in 2001. It is found in North America, where it has been recorded from California.

The length of the forewings is 5.6-8.5 mm for males or 5.7–7 mm for females. The forewings are grey, irregularly black spotted with a triad of blackish stigmata in the disc partly fusing to form a dark spot. There is a group of submarginal blackish stigmata. The hindwings are unicolorous dark to pale grey.

The larvae feed on Erigeron glaucus and Solidago spathulata. They feed on the new spring growth, excavating a full-depth blotch mine in early instars.
