Elachista scobifera is a moth of the Elachistidae family that is found in Arizona.[1]

The length of the forewings is 4–6.3 millimetres (0.16–0.25 in). The ground colour of the forewings is white. There are light grey scales along the veins and there is a weak cilia line of the same colour. The hindwings are whitish to light grey and the underside of the wings is grey.


The species name is derived from Latin scobis and -fera (meaning bearing dust).
