Villadia is a genus of family Crassulaceae. It includes about 25 to 30 species distributed from Texas to Peru.

Synonyms[edit]

Altamiranoa was a genus of the Crassulaceae, that Joseph Nelson Rose proposed in the early 1900s for 12 Mexican species, three described as new and nine formerly in Cotyledon, Sedum, or Umbilicus. The name was dedicated to Fernando Altamirano, a Mexican physician, botanist and naturalist that co-worked with J. N. Rose.

Baehni (1937) united the genus Altamiranoa with Villadia, but Walther (1938) refuted the argument and proposed the combined genus be called species of Altamiranoa are best dispersed in Sedum genus, but maintained the differences with Villadia genus.

Species listed under Altamiranoa include:
