Syncopacma mitrella is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Walsingham in 1905. It is found in Algeria.

The wingspan is about 10 mm. The forewings are bronzy fuscous at the base, darkening to deep brownish fuscous towards the middle, clearly and straightly defined along the inner edge of a white transverse fascia, somewhat expanded outward from the dorsum to the costa. Beyond this the dark brownish fuscous colouring is continued to the apex with bright shining pale steel-grey scales, each tipped with black, radiating outwards along the margins at the base of the brownish grey cilia. The hindwings are leaden grey.
