Scrobipalpa costella is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It is found in western Europe.

The wingspan is 9.5-15.5 mm. Adults appear in September and spend the winter. After overwintering, they are on wing till June.

The larvae feed on Solanum dulcamara. They mine the leaves of their host plant. Young larvae bore in the midrib. From there, they make rather small, brownish, wrinkled blotches. Later they may create blotches that extend further from the midrib, start boring or live freely on the host plant. Pupation takes place outside of the mine. Larvae can be found from mid September to June.
