Hiernia is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Orobanchaceae.[1] It only contains one species, Hiernia angolensis S.Moore [2]

Its native range is Angola and Namibia.[2]

The genus name of Hiernia is in honour of William Philip Hiern (1839–1925), a British mathematician and botanist.[3] The Latin specific epithet of angolensis refers to coming from Angola. It was first described and published in J. Bot. Vol.18 on page 196 in 1880.[2]
