Burkartia is a monotypic genus of flowering plants in the aster family, Asteraceae,[2] containing the single species Burkartia lanigera.[3] It is endemic to southern Argentina (Provinces of Chubut, Rio Negro, Santa Cruz).[4][1]

This species was formerly in genus Perezia, but it was separated because it has woolly trichomes in the leaf axils, a character not seen in any other Perezia.[5] The genus Burkartia was erected for it in 1976.[6] Molecular phylogenetic analyses in 2009 supported its separation from Perezia.[5]
