Schaueria is a genus of flowering plants in the family Acanthaceae. They are endemic to Brazil, from Bahia to Rio Grande do Sul. They are characterized by small elongated white or yellow flowers and narrow to thread-like green or yellow bracts. They are found mainly in rain forests, semi-deciduous mountain forests, and restingas. They are pollinated by bees and hummingbirds.[1]

The genus was established by the German naturalist Christian Gottfried Daniel Nees von Esenbeck in 1838.[2] It is considered monophyletic and includes fourteen species:[1][3]
