Scythropia is a genus of moths of the ermine moth family (Yponomeutidae). It is usually separated in a monotypic subfamily Scythropiinae, but sometimes included in the Yponomeutinae.

They are sometimes called "diamondback moths", which more often refers to Plutella xylostella of the fairly closely related Plutellidae.
