Scrobipalpula antiochia 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 4.8–6 mm for males and 5-5.4 mm for females. The forewings are bicolored, with the costal half nearly unicolorous ferrugineous and the dorsal area grey, with an admixture of blackish. The termen has a mixture of cinereous and blackish and there are usually delicate blackish stigmata in the discal area. The hindwings are grey with variable hues.

The larvae feed on Senecio douglasii, within terminal shelters in new foliage.
