Coptosapelteae is a tribe incertae sedis of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae and contains about 55 species in 2 genera. Its representatives are found in tropical and subtropical Asia.[1] This tribe has not been placed within as subfamily of Rubiaceae, but is sister to the rest of the family.[2]
