Cryptophasa crocochorda is a moth in the Xyloryctidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1925. It is found in New Guinea.

The wingspan is about 57 mm. The forewings are whitish-yellowish with an orange-fulvous pointed streak along the basal third of the costa, the costal edge fuscous throughout. A narrow light fulvous-orange median streak is found from one-fourth almost to the termen, and a slender one along the fold throughout. The hindwings are white.
