Agnippe separatella is a moth of the Gelechiidae family. It is found in southern Iran.

The wingspan is 7.5–8 mm. The forewings are white with a brown basal patch and a triangular brown spot on the middle of the costal margin. The hindwings are light grey. Adults are on wing from the end of March to early June.


The name of the species reflects its distinctive genitalia and external characters, and separate position within the genus. It is derived from Latin separatus (meaning separate).[1]
