Xylorycta amaloptis is a moth in the Xyloryctidae family. It was described by Lower in 1915. It is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from New South Wales.

The wingspan is about 28 mm. The forewings are pale whitish-grey, somewhat flesh-tinged, all markings obsolete. There is a fuscous-ferruginous line along the termen and the apical fifth of the costa, obscure on the costa and minutely dentate internally on the termen. The hindwings are light fuscous, becoming whitish towards the base.
