Phasmatinae is a subfamily of stick insects in the family Phasmatidae. They contain at least three tribes. Some treatments recognize up to seven tribes.

The generally recognized tribes are:

The Clitumnini and Pharnaciini are here separated in a distinct subfamily Clitumninae, and while the Achriopterini and Stephanacridini are also often placed in the Phasmatinae, other authors treat them as tribes incertae sedis among the Phasmatidae as is done here.
