Tecia venosa is a moth in the Gelechiidae family. It was described by Butler in 1883. It is found in Argentina, Chile and Colombia.

The length of the forewings is 9.5–13 mm. The forewings are pale cinereous with numerous longitudinal whitish vein-like striations. The costal and dorsal margin are shaded similarly as the apex in which the darker marginal spots are poorly visible or just indicated. The hindwings are paler near the base than apically where it is deeper grey, especially along the veins.

The larvae feed on Baccharis macrantha.
