Isophrictis pennella is a moth of the family Gelechiidae. It was described by August Busck in 1907. It is found in North America, where it has been recorded from Arizona.[1][2]

The wingspan is about 15 mm. The forewings are light ochreous, with the extreme costal edge and a narrow longitudinal streak on the fold white. From apical fifth of costa runs a faint oblique white streak across the wing to the termen and on the middle of the fold is a short longitudinal black streak, above this in the cell is a larger longitudinal streak, and at the end of the cell is a third very short black streak or dot. A few single black scales are sprinkled over the apical half of the wing along costal and dorsal edge. The hindwings are light ochreous fuscous.[3]
