Phostria buckleyi is a moth in the Crambidae family. It was described by Druce in 1902. It is found in Ecuador.

The forewings are chrome-yellow, darkest at the base of the costal margin. There is a rather wide band crossing the wing just beyond the cell, and the apex and outer margin are dark purplish brown. The hindwings are pale chrome-yellow, but the apex and outer margin are purplish brown to the middle. A faint brown line extends from the end of the cell to the middle of the outer margin.
