Scrobipalpula ochroschista is a moth in the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1929. It is found in North America, where it has been recorded from Texas.

The wingspan is 12–15 mm. The forewings are grey-whitish irrorated grey, sometimes sprinkled blackish with pale ochreous streaks beneath the costa on the anterior half, in the disc throughout the cell, along the fold to near the extremity, and between the veins towards the costa posteriorly more or less developed, sometimes partially obscured or even imperceptible. There are cloudy dots of dark fuscous irroration on the costa near the base and at one-fourth, and beneath the fold at one-fourth, often imperceptible. The stigmata are blackish, often surrounded by pale ochreous, the plical somewhat before the first discal and the costa posteriorly and termen are sometimes obscurely spotted dark irroration.
