Crocanthes pyrochorda is a moth in the Lecithoceridae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1910. It is found in New Guinea.

The wingspan is 12-14 mm. The forewings are deep reddish-orange with the costal and dorsal edge and all veins marked by fine black lines, all terminated by a rather curved black transverse line from the costa before three-fourths to the dorsum before the tornus. The discal stigmata are represented by small black spots and there is a black marginal line around the posterior fourth of the costa and termen to near the tornus. The hindwings are deep reddish-orange, with all veins marked throughout with fine black lines. There is a black discal spot on the end of the cell and a rather irregular black line from four-fifths of the costa to below the middle of the termen, indented in the middle. A slender irregular black streak is found along the upper half of the termen.
