Tepilia is a genus of moths of the Phiditiidae family.


The genus was originally established Drepanidae, but was later placed in the Lymantriidae by Schaus in 1927 and the Apatelodidae by Minet in 1986. Lemaire and Minet placed in the subfamily Phiditiinae in 1999.[2] This subfamily was raised to family level in 2011.[3]
