Kohautia

Kohautia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae. They are native to tropical areas of Asia, Africa, and Madagascar.[1][2] Thirty-one species are known.[2] The type species for the genus is Kohautia senegalensis.[3]

Kohautia was named by Adelbert von Chamisso and Diederich von Schlechtendal in 1829.[4] This generic name honors Franz Kohaut (d. 1822), a plant collector who worked in West Africa for the botanist Franz Sieber (1789-1844).[5]

Kohautia is diphyletic, consisting of two clades that are not sister taxa. The clade that contains the type species is related to Pentanopsis. The other clade consists of one of the sections of Kohautia. It is sister to Oldenlandia and will be renamed as a new genus.[6]
