Euchromius mythus is a species of moth in the Crambidae family. It occurs in most of eastern and southern Africa, including Kenya, Tanzania, Zaire, Malawi, the Comoros, Madagascar, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa. The habitat consists of moist and dry savanna and woodland areas, up to an altitude of 1,000 meters.

The length of the forewings is 13–22 mm. The groundcolour of the forewings is white to creamy white, densely suffused with ochreous to dark brown scales. The hindwings are creamy white to grey with a darkly bordered termen. Adults are on wing in March, April and May in most of the range, but also in June (in Tanzania), July (on Madagascar), August (on the Comoros) and September (in Zaire).
