The Helicopini are a tribe of metalmark butterflies (family Riodinidae).


Anteros Hübner, [1819]
Helicopis Fabricius, 1807
Ourocnemis Baker, 1887
Sarota Westwood, [1851]

As numerous Riodinidae genera have not yet been unequivocally assigned to a tribe, the genus list is preliminary. In fact, it is likely that the bulk of the Riodinidae incertae sedis belongs into this group.[1]
