The paleotropical genus Memecylon L. (Memecylaceae DC. or Melastomataceae Juss. subfam. Olisbeoideae Burnett) has about 150–300 species. It is mainly distributed from tropical Africa, Madagascar, southeastern Asia and northern Australia to the Fiji Islands. In India, it is represented by about 32 species, of which 13 are endemic to Western and Eastern Ghats of southern India. Various workers have added 23 additional species for India either as new species or as new records.
