The genus Callophrys consists of butterflies in the family Lycaenidae. It is apparently not monophyletic, but which of the taxa currently considered junior synonyms of Callophrys are valid genera remains to be determined.

The Old World (Asia and Europe) members of this genus are commonly known as green hairstreaks, while the North American ones are called elfins.
