Aemilia is a genus of tiger moths in the Erebidae family. It was initially named Ameles, but this name properly refers to a praying mantis genus.[1]

A group of species closely related to the Red-banded Aemilia ("A." ambigua) was formerly placed in the genus (though only uneasily so). The species has recently been moved to the revalidated genus Pseudohemihyalea.[2]
