Anthelidae is a family of Australian lappet moths in the order Lepidoptera. It had earlier been considered to be part of the Lasiocampoidea superfamily, but a 2008 molecular phylogenetic study, supported by a 2011 study, resulted in reincluding the Anthelidae in the superfamily Bombycoidea.[1][2]

The subfamily Anthelinae consists of a total of nine genera and ninety-four species.[3] Of these, seven genera and about ninety-one species, while the subfamily Munychryiinae comprises two genera and three species:[3]
