Pseudacraea eurytus, the false wanderer, is a butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. It is found in Africa.

The wingspan is 60–68 mm for males and 65–75 mm for females. Adults are on wing year round, but mainly from December to May. There is a strong peak in late summer.[2]

The larvae feed on Mimusops obovata, Englerophytum magalismontanum, E. natalense and Chrysophyllum viridifolium.
