Scrobipalpa ochrostigma is a moth in the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Bidzilya and Li in 2010. It is found in China (Gansu, Qinghai).

The wingspan is about 13.5 mm. The forewings are light brown, the posterior margin black from the base to half the length and in the subapical area. There is a narrow black strip along the costal margin from the base to two-thirds. Ochreous spots are found at the base, at one-third and at two-thirds. The hindwings are grey. Adults are on wing in August.

Etymology

The species name refers to the wing pattern and is derived from Greek ochra (meaning ochreous) and stigma (meaning marks).
