Anisoplaca achyrota is a species of moth in the family Gelechiidae. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1886. It is endemic to New Zealand.

The wingspan is 17–18 mm. The forewings are light brownish-ochreous, irregularly mixed with whitish and blackish scales. The anterior half of the costa is suffused with whitish, and dotted with blackish. The inner margin between one-fourth and two-thirds is suffused with blackish and there is a small black spot on the base of the costa, as well as four small black discal spots, surrounded with whitish rings, the first in the disc before the middle, the second on the fold rather before the first, their rings confluent, the third and fourth dot-like, transversely placed and close together in disc at three-fifths. There is a cloudy whitish fascia from four-fifths of the costa to the anal angle, dentate outwards in the middle and a cloudy black hindmarginal line. The hindwings are grey, towards the base paler.
