Saintpauliopsis is a monotypic genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Acanthaceae.[2] It only contains one known species, Saintpauliopsis lebrunii Staner [2]

It is native to Burundi, Gabon, Madagascar, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zaïre.[2]

The genus name of Saintpauliopsis is in honour of Walter Le Tanneux de Saint Paul-Illaire (1860–1940), a German imperial precinct captain in German East Africa (roughly present-day Tanzania), and his father, Ulrich Maximilian von Saint Paul-Illaire (1833–1902), a German naval officer and court official.[3] The Latin specific epithet of lebrunii refers to Belgian botanist Lebrun, Jean Paul Antoine (1906-1985).[4] It was first described and published in Bull. Jard. Bot. État Bruxelles Vol.13 on page 8 in 1934.[2]
