Gochnatia is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae.[2] It is named for botanist Frédéric Karl Gochnat. The genus contains mainly shrubs and subshrubs, with a few trees and herbs. All of the species are native to the American tropics.[3] Two species native to the mountains of Southeast Asia and formerly included here are now separated as the genus Leucomeris in subfamily Wunderlichioideae.[4]

These plants produce flower heads containing whitish or yellow disc florets each with five deep lobes. The style has short, smooth branches, and the fruit is a lightly hairy cypsela with a pappus of bristles or scales.[4][5]
