Scopula antiloparia is a moth of the family Geometridae. It is found in south-western Africa.

Taxonomy

The species is possibly a junior synonym of Scopula minorata, based on genital examination of type material at The Natural History Museum, London, and Universitets Zoologiska Institut, Uppsala, Sweden. Prout suggested that it could be conspecific with Scopula sincera based on a description of A. antiloparia, not on examination of the types.
