Kohautia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae. They are native to tropical areas of Asia, Africa, and Madagascar.[1][2] Thirty-one species are known.[2] The type species for the genus is Kohautia senegalensis.[3]

Kohautia was named by Adelbert von Chamisso and Diederich von Schlechtendal in 1829.[4] This generic name honors Franz Kohaut (d. 1822), a plant collector who worked in West Africa for the botanist Franz Sieber (1789-1844).[5]
