Scoparia acharis is a moth of the Crambidae family. It was described by Meyrick in 1885. It is found in New Zealand.

The wingspan is 17.5 mm. The forewings are whitish-ochreous, irrorated with fuscous and dark fuscous. There is a sharply defined oblique black spot from the base of the costa. The first line is indicated only by an obscure dark posterior margin, followed on the costa by a sharply-defined moderate triangular black spot. The terminal area is suffused with brownish-ochreous and there is a cloudy, ochreous-whitish subterminal line with a row of ochreous-whitish marks. The hindwings are very pale whitish grey. Adults have been recorded on wing in January.
