Drypetes is a plant genus of the family Putranjivaceae, in the order Malpighiales.

It was previously in the family Euphorbiaceae, tribe Drypeteae, and was the sole pantropical zoochorous genus of the family.

The genus comprises about 200 species, found in Africa, southern Asia, Australia, Central America, the Caribbean, southern Florida, Mexico, and various oceanic islands.[1] They are dioecious trees or shrubs.[2]

Along with Putranjiva,[3] also in the Putranjivaceae, Drypetes contains the only plants outside the Brassicales known to contain mustard oils.[4]
