Solanum capsicoides (Cockroach Berry, known as polohauaiʻi in Polynesia) is a flowering plant in the Solanaceae family. It is native to eastern Brazil but naturalized in other tropical regions, where it sometimes becomes an invasive weed.
This species had been included in S. aculeatissimum as variety denudatum by Dunal (Solanum denudatum of Bitter is S. humile as described by Lamarck). It was also included in the eggplant (S. melongena) under its junior synonym S. trongum (as var. sinuato-pinnatifidum), also by Dunal.
In addition, the Cockroach Berry is sometimes referenced under the following obsolete names:
- Solanum arrebenta Vell.
- Solanum bodinieri H.Lév. & Vaniot
- Solanum capsicoides Hort. Paris ex Lam. (preoccupied)
- Solanum ciliare Willd.
- Solanum ciliatum Lam.
- Solanum ciliatum var. arenarium Dunal
- S. arenarium of Schur is S. villosum as described by Philip Miller.
