Galomecalpa quatrofascia is a species of moth of the Tortricidae family. It is found in Ecuador (Pichincha Province).


The wingspan is 34 millimetres (1.3 in). The ground colour of the forewings is cream, but glossy whitish along the edges of markings and mixed brownish-ochreous medially. There are four brownish-ochreous fasciae. The hindwings are cream, slightly tinged with yellowish-brown and with grey-brown strigulation.


The species name refers to number of fasciae of the forewing and is derived from Latin quatro (meaning four).[2]
