Stigmella alaternella is a moth of the Nepticulidae family. It is found in France, the Iberian Peninsula and Italy.

The larvae feed on Rhamnus alaternus. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine consists of a full depth, not very slender corridor, not associated with the leaf margin, widening into a very large blotch.
