Adejeania is a genus of tachinid flies from the Americas. While most species are found in South America, A. vexatrix occurs from Mexico up to British Columbia. The genus name is an alteration of Dejeania, meaning "not Dejeania". Other tachinid genera from the same root are Eudejeania, Paradejeania and Protodejeania.
