Eudonia zophochlaena is a moth in the Crambidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1923. It is found in New Zealand.

The wingspan is about 18 mm. The forewings are light ochreous-brownish. The first line is white and double, blotched with ferruginous-ochreous above and below the middle. The second line is followed by a blackish transverse blotch from the costa hardly reaching half across the wing. The hindwings are ochreous-whitish, with an apical blotch of light-grey suffusion. Adults have been recorded on wing in January.
