Fevillea is a genus of the plant family Cucurbitaceae (the cucumber, squash, and pumpkin family). Some references suggest that there is only one member of this genus, Fevillea cordifolia (antidote vine). Other online sources make reference to Fevillea pedatifolia (formerly Fevillea peruviana), Fevillea trilobata , and to Fevillea passiflora.

The genus is named after the French botanist Louis Feuillée.
