Cyclophora is a genus of moth in the Geometridae family.


Traditionally, species included in this genus were either placed in Cyclophora (mostly Holarctic species) and Anisodes (mostly tropical species). Research concluded that these species belong in the same genus. The type species of Anisodes was even found to have features that are used to define Cyclophora.[2]
