Cremaspora is a genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family. It is the only genus in the tribe Cremasporeae. It was described by George Bentham in 1849.[1] The genus is widespread across much of sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal to Tanzania and south to Mozambique and Zimbabwe, in addition to Madagascar, Comoros, and Cape Verde. There are, however, only two currently recognized species.[2]
