Stenolechia deltocausta is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It is found in India (Assam).

The wingspan is about 10 mm. The forewings are pale ochreous tinged or minutely striolated grey. The markings are black, margined white. There is a streak along the basal one-fifth of the costa and a dot above the fold at one-fourth, one obliquely beyond it towards the dorsum and a large triangular blotch extending on the costa from one-third to three-fifths, and reaching three-fourths across the wing. There is also a dot just above the tornus, and one in the disc above this. Some irregular blackish-grey suffusion is found towards the costa posteriorly and there is an acutely angulated white transverse line at three-fourth, two or three black scales preceding the angle, as well as a minute black apical dot. The hindwings are light grey.
