Soejatmia is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Poaceae. It just contains one species, Soejatmia ridleyi (Gamble) K.M.Wong[2]

Its native range is from the peninsula of Thailand to Malaya.[2]

The genus name of Soejatmia is in honour of Soejatmi Dransfield (b. 1939), an, Indonesia-born British plant taxonomist specializing in bamboos and also honorary research fellow at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.[3] The Latin specific epithet of ridleyi refers to Henry Nicholas Ridley (1855 – 1956), was an English botanist, geologist and naturalist who lived much of his life in Singapore.[4] Both the genus and the species were first described and published in Kew Bull. Vol.48 on pages 530-532 in 1993.[1][2]

The genus is recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Agricultural Research Service, but they do not list any known species.[5]
