Cyathodes is a genus of shrubs within the family Ericaceae. A characteristic feature of the genus is a deeply five-cleft calyx.[1]

The genus was described by Jacques Labillardière based on floral characters like floral parts number, corolla shape, number of floral parts, locule number and number of seeds per locule.[2] Species include:[3]

Cyathodes dealbata R.Br.
Cyathodes glauca Labill.
Cyathodes petiolaris (DC.) Druce
Cyathodes platystoma C.M.Weiller
Cyathodes straminea R.Br.

A number of species formerly included in this genus are now placed in the genera Acrothamnus, Leptecophylla, Lissanthe and Planocarpa.[3]
