Pennellianthus is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Plantaginaceae.[2] It only contains one known species, Pennellianthus frutescens (Lamb.) Crosswh. The genus is within the Tribe Cheloneae along with Penstemon, from which Pennellianthus was separated from.[3]

Its native range is Russian Far East (within the regions of Kamchatka, Khabarovsk, the Kuril Islands, Magadan, Sakhalin) and also Japan.[1]

The genus name of Pennellia is in honour of Francis W. Pennell (1886–1952), an American botanist best known for his studies of the Scrophulariaceae.[4] The Latin specific epithet of frutescens means shrubby (referring to the habit of the plant).[5] Both the genus and the species were first described and published in Amer. Midl. Naturalist Vol.83 on page 362 in 1970.[3][1]
