Meyna is a genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family.

Distribution

The genus is found in tropical Asia, except for Meyna tetraphylla that occurs in northeastern tropical Africa and the Comoros.

Taxonomy

Based on morphology, Meyna has been suggested as likely candidate for inclusion in Canthium subgenus Canthium.[1] In 2004, a molecular phylogenetic study showed that Meyna tetraphylla is related to Canthium and the transfer to Canthium was suggested.[2]
