Lamourouxia is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Orobanchaceae.[1]

Its native range is Mexico to Peru. It is found in the countries of Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru.[1] Kew also adds Magadan in Russia,[1] this could be a random mistake.

The genus name of Lamourouxia is in honour of Jean Vincent Félix Lamouroux (1779–1825), a French biologist and naturalist, noted for his seminal work with algae.[2] It was first described and published in F.W.H.von Humboldt, A.J.A.Bonpland & C.S.Kunth, Nov. Gen. Sp. Vol.2on page 335 in 1818.[1]
