Corythoxestis cyanolampra is a moth of the Gracillariidae family. It is known from South Africa.[2]

The larvae feed on Burchellia bubalina. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine has the form of an extremely long, narrow, irregularly contorted, purely epidermal gallery on the upper side of the leaf.
