Wittsteinia is a small genus of flowering plants in the family Alseuosmiaceae. The genus was first formally described by botanist Ferdinand von Mueller in Fragmenta Phytographiae Australiae in 1861.[1] The name honours Dr Georg Christian Wittstein, the author of an etymological dictionary used as a reference by Mueller.[2]

The genus comprises two species:[3]

Wittsteinia papuana (Steen.) Steen. – from Papua New Guinea
Wittsteinia vacciniacea F.Muell. – Baw Baw berry, from Victoria, Australia
