Dorstenia

Dorstenia is a genus of about 105 species in the plant family Moraceae. Most species are Neotropical or Afrotropical, with a single species in India, Sri Lanka and the island of Socotra (Yemen).[1] [2] Dorstenia is named in honor of the German physician and botanist Theodor Dorsten (1492 - 1552).[3]

Species in this genus were a source of the herbal preparation contrayerva.[4]
