Kydia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Malvaceae, found in the Indian subcontinent, southern China and Southeast Asia.[2] Some sources consider it to be monotypic, with Kydia calycina the only species; certainly K. calycina is the best‑studied species, as it is widely exploited, even cultivated, for timber and fiber.[3]

Currently accepted species include:[2]

Kydia calycina Roxb.
Kydia glabrescens Mast.
