Bleptina is a genus of litter moths of the family Erebidae. It was erected by Achille Guenée in 1854.[1][2][3][4]

Palpi with second joint reaching far above vertex of head. Third joint long with a tuft of hair on inner side. Antennae fasciculated (bundled) in male. Thorax and abdomen smoothly scaled. Forewings with somewhat acute apex. Veins 8 and 9 anastomosing (fusing) to form the areole, which is short and broad or long and narrow. Vein 10 sometimes given off beyond it. Hindwings with vein 5 from near lower angle of cell.[5]
