Howelliella is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Plantaginaceae.[1] It only contains one species, Howelliella ovata.[2]

It is native to California.[2]

The genus name of Howelliella is in honour of John Thomas Howell (1903–1994), an American botanist and taxonomist,[3] and the Latin specific epithet of ovata refers to ovate, from ovum meaning egg.[4] Both genus and species were first described and published in 1954.[5]
