Crocanthes thalamectis is a moth in the Lecithoceridae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1929. It is found in New Guinea.

The wingspan is about 15 mm. The forewings are dark fuscous with ochreous-white markings. There is some irregular marbling on the base of the costa and a semi-oval spot on the middle of the costa, two confluent irregular rings touching this beneath, and a third larger connecting them with the dorsum. There is a small wedge-shaped spot on the costa towards the apex, connected by a line of a few scattered scales with the tornus. The hindwings are dark grey with two large and two or three small whitish rings irregularly placed in the disc, and a whitish line from the end of the posterior large ring to before the pro-flexus.
