Scrobipalpula densata is a moth in the family Gelechiidae. It was described by Meyrick in 1917. It is found in Argentina, Peru and on the Galapagos Islands.[1]

The wingspan is 12–14 mm. The forewings are whitish irrorated with dark grey or blackish and with several indistinct blackish dots on the basal area, an obscure rather oblique darker streak from the costa at one-fourth to the plical stigma, sometimes edged with whitish anteriorly, preceded and followed beneath the costa by ochreous marks. The stigmata are moderate or large, black and edged below by ochreous spots and sometimes surrounded by irregular ochreous markings, the plical rather obliquely before the first discal. There are indistinct cloudy whitish opposite costal and tornal marks at three-fourths, sometimes united into a slightly angulated shade. The hindwings are slaty-grey.[2]
