Tecution is a genus of spiders from Saint Helena within the Eutichuridae family. They were first described and named by Benoit in 1977. It was originally placed in the Clubionidae, but it was moved to Miturgidae in 1997, then to Eutichuridae by Ramírez in 2014. The genus consists of three species.

  • Tecution helenicola Benoit, 1977 – St. Helena
  • Tecution mellissi (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1873) – St. Helena
