Coleophora serinipennella is a moth of the Coleophoridae family. It is found in southern Europe, North Africa, the Near East, the eastern Palearctic ecozone (including Japan), as well as in Australia in south-western Queensland, South Australia and arid areas of Western Australia south of Carnarvon.[1]

The wingspan is 14–17 millimetres (0.55–0.67 in). Adults are on wing from June to August.[2]

The larvae feed on Atriplex, Halimione and Chenopodium species. They make galls in the stems of their host plant. The galls are large, oval or elongated. They are not always constant in shape.[3]
