The genus Mitrephora, of family Annonaceae,[1] comprises around 40 species of trees and shrubs found in tropical Asia and northern Australasia. The area of distribution extends from China in the North (Hainan, Yunnan) down to Queensland, Australia in the South. The genus is widely found in southern India (Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu) and Southeast Asia. It reaches a maximum of diversity in Borneo and the Philippines.

Mitrephora are a genus of trees that are often tall. They have leathery leaves. They have 3 rounded sepals. Their flowers have 6 petals arranged in two whorls. The edges of the petals in each whorl touch one another. The exterior petals are oval with somewhat conspicuous venation. The interior petals have a basal claw with a vaulted blade. Their flowers have numerous oblong to wedge-shapted stamen with dorsally positioned bi-lobed anthers. Their flowers have hairless carpels with oblong ovaries. Within the ovaries the numerous ovules are positioned axially in two rows. Its elongated styles are grooved on the inside.[2]
