Scrobipalpa concreta is a moth in the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1914. It is found in South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo (Orientale).

The wingspan is 15–16 mm. The forewings are whitish-ochreous, sometimes slightly yellowish-tinged, variably sprinkled with fuscous and dark fuscous specks, sometimes very slightly, sometimes tending to form several undefined small spots along the costa. There is a dark fuscous dot near the base in the middle, and one slightly beyond it beneath the costa. The stigmata are small, dark fuscous, the plical beneath the first discal. There are sometimes dots of dark fuscous irroration around the posterior part of the costa and termen. The hindwings are pale grey or whitish-grey.
