Stenoma zobeida is a moth in the Depressariidae family. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1931. It is found in Mexico and Panama.

The wingspan is 17–19 mm. The forewings are light greyish ochreous with a triangular greyish-violet blotch from the dorsum at two-fifths reaching more than half across the wing, edged anteriorly towards the dorsum by a white line terminating in a small orange scale-projection and preceded by some greyish-violet dorsal suffusion, the apex of the blotch connected with the costa before one-third by a greyish-violet line. There is a transverse-oval dark fuscous whitish-edged blotch on the end of the cell and a curved greyish-violet line from the middle of the costa passing just beyond this to the dorsum at four-fifths, its lower half thickened into a fasciate blotch. There is a greyish-violet line from the costa at three-fourths to the dorsum before the tornus, thickened and sinuate inwards near the costa, the space between this and the preceding tinged whitish towards the costa. A grayish-violet marginal streak is found around the apex and termen, obscurely whitish edged anteriorly. The hindwings are grey.
