Barbeuia madagascariensis
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Plantae
(unranked): Angiosperms
(unranked): Eudicots
(unranked): Core eudicots
Order: Caryophyllales
Family: Barbeuiaceae
Genus: Berbeuia
Species: B. madagascariensis
Binomial name
Barbeuia madagascariensis

Barbeuia madagascariensis is a liana found only on the island of Madagascar.

Barbeuia has occasionally been placed in its own family, Barbeuiaceae. The APG II system of 2003, for instance, recognies such a family and assigns it to the order Caryophyllales in the clade core eudicots. This represents a change from the APG system, of 1998, which did not recognize Barbeuiaceae as a family.
