Vernacular names
English: green hairstreaks

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

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