Telphusa barygrapta is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It is found in Indonesia (Java).

The wingspan is 7–8 mm. The forewings are whitish-ochreous, partially tinged brown and irrorated grey. The markings are formed by dark fuscous suffusion mixed blackish. There is a narrow blackish basal fascia, and another rather oblique with the central tuft at about one-fourth, these are sometimes united by dark suffusion into a basal patch. There is a transverse band occupying nearly the median third of the wing, with two blackish spots sometimes filled with pale brownish representing the discal stigmata, a pale brownish subdorsal tuft beneath the second. The apical fourth is suffused dark grey except for a more or less developed acutely angulated transverse series of small pale brownish spots. The hindwings are light bluish-grey.
