Symphorostola encomias is a moth in the family Xyloryctidae, and the only species in the genus Symphorostola. Both species and genus were described by Edward Meyrick in 1927. The species is found on Sumatra.[1]

The wingspan is about 13 mm. The forewings are blackish with the costal edge finely white towards the middle and with an irregular dark blue-leaden basal blotch not reaching the costa of the dorsum. There is a dark blue-leaden subtriangular blotch on the costa before the middle, where an irregular streak runs to the anterior end of an oblong fulvous-brown blotch extending along the posterior half of the dorsum to the termen, the second discal stigma represented by a blue leaden-metallic spot resting on the edge of this blotch, a spot of white irroration in this above the tornus. The hindwings are blackish-fuscous with an irregular elongate-oval pale ochreous-yellow blotch in the disc.[2]
