Abantiades is a genus of moths of the family Hepialidae. There are 14 described species, all found exclusively in Australia. The group includes some large species with a wingspan of up to 160 mm. The larvae feed on the roots of Eucalyptus and other trees.

The Pindi moth (A. latipennis) is an abundant species of the eucalypt forests of Tasmania and, unlike many invertebrate species, appears to adapt well to the controversial forestry practice of clearfelling.
