Amblypodia is a genus of butterflies in the family Lycaenidae.[1] Several species formerly placed here are now in Arhopala and Flos, although this placement is not necessarily definite.

The remaining species of Amblypodia are:

Amblypodia anita – purple leaf blue
Amblypodia annetta
Amblypodia narada

The species of this genus are found in the Indomalayan realm (mainly) and the Australasian realm.
