"Antennaria" is a genus of about 45 species of herbaceous perennial plants in the family Asteraceae, native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, with one species ("A. chilensis") in temperate southern South America; the highest species diversity is in North America. Common names include catsfoot or cat's-foot, pussytoes and everlasting.

Different "Antennaria" species reach between 10 cm and 50 cm in height. The leaves are basal and often stem leaves. The name "Antennaria" refers to the projecting stamens seen on the flowers of some species, resembling insect antennae.

"Antennaria" species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including "Coleophora pappiferella" (which feeds exclusively on "A. dioica") and "Schinia verna" (which feeds exclusively on "Antennaria spp").
