Bennettites refers to an extinct genus of the order Bennettitales.

Bennettites had a bare, thick central trunk with a top of pithy, dividing leaves. Some could produce poisons, to deter herbivores. They were gymnosperms with cones just below the bottom leaves of the top, with creation of pollen and seeds happening in the same plant.
