Rusbya is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Ericaceae.[1] It only contains one known species, Rusbya taxifolia Britton [1]

It is native to Bolivia.[1]

The genus name of Rusbya is in honour of Henry Hurd Rusby (1855–1940), an American botanist, pharmacist and explorer.[2] The Latin specific epithet of taxifolia is from Latin taxus, meaning 'yew', and folium, meaning 'leaf': i.e., 'yew-leaved'.[3] Both the genus and the species were first described and published in Bull. Torrey Bot. Club Vol.20 on pages 67-68 in 1893.[1]
