Hanguana is a genus of flowering plants. It is the only genus in the family Hanguanaceae.

The APG II system, of 2003 does recognize such a family and places it in the order Commelinales, in the clade commelinids, in the monocots. This represents a slight change from the APG system, of 1998, which left Hanguanaceae unplaced as to order, but assigned it to these same clades (although it used the name commelinoids). The family consists of only very few species of perennial, tropical plants in Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, New Guinea, Micronesia, and northern Australia.[2][3][4]
