Tmetolophota alopa is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1887 from specimens collected near Lake Coleridge and Lake Guyon in Canterbury in March. It is endemic to New Zealand. In 2019 Robert J. B. Hoare undertook a major review of New Zealand noctuids. Hoare, having inspected the holotype specimen of this species, placed it within the genus Ichneutica.
