Telphusa syndelta is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It is found in Zimbabwe.

The wingspan is about 12 mm. The forewings are ochreous-white and the markings black, with a slight purplish tinge. There are two large triangular dorsal blotches, connected on the dorsum, occupying the whole dorsum except the base, the first reaching two-thirds across the wing and just touching a triangular spot on the costa at one-fourth, the second reaching more than half across the wing. There is a semi-oval spot on the costa beyond the middle, a minute strigula before this, and a very small spot at three-fourths, as well as an oblong blotch extending along the termen to the costa and just touching the second dorsal blotch at the tornus. The hindwings are grey, thinly scaled and subhyaline anteriorly, darker-suffused towards the termen.
