The forest fever tree Anthocleista grandiflora, photographed by Noraaron.

Belongs within: Gentianales.

The Potalioideae are a pantropical assemblage (with one genus each in Africa, Australasia and the Americas) of three genera of the plant family Gentianaceae. Potalioids differ from other members of the family in being woody rather than herbaceous, and possessing fleshy fruits. However, their relationship to other members of Gentianaceae has been demonstrated by chemical and molecular analysis.
