Epiperola vafinsa is a species of moth in the family of Cup Moths, Limacodidae.

The Limacodidae or Eucleidae are a family of moths in the superfamily Zygaenoidea or the Cossoidea; the placement is in dispute. They are often called slug moths because their caterpillars bear a distinct resemblance to slugs.They are also called cup moths because of the shape of their cocoons.
