Neonauclea Merr.

Neonauclea is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae. It comprises about 71 species.[1] Neonauclea is a genus of shrubs and trees They are indigenous to China, India, Southeast Asia, Wallacea, New Guinea and Australia.

Neonauclea was named in 1915 by Elmer Drew Merrill.[2][3] The generic name is derived from the related genus Nauclea and the Greek word neos, meaning "new".[4]

The biological type for Neonauclea consists of those specimens that Merrill called Neonauclea obtusa.[5] These are now included in Neonauclea excelsa.[6]

The circumscription of Neonauclea is uncertain. Molecular phylogenetic studies indicate that some related genera are probably embedded in it.[7]
