Global Biodiversity Information Facility. 2019. GBIF Backbone Taxonomy. Checklist dataset. Taxon: Hoverdenia. .

Hoverdenia is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Acanthaceae.[1] It only contains one species, Hoverdenia speciosa.[2]

It is native to Mexico.[2]

The genus name of Hoverdenia is in honour of Adrian Josef Graf von Hoverden-Plencken (1798–1875), a Silesian administrator and collector. He was also the president of the former museum in Wrocław.[3] The Latin specific epithet of speciosa refers to speciosus meaning showy.[4] Both genus and species were first described and published in 1847.[5]
