Cymophora is a genus of flowering plants in the aster family.[1][2] All known species are native to Mexico.[3]

Some authors have included these plants in the genus Tridax because they are similar species with the same chromosome count. Others find that they have sufficient morphological differences to be kept separate.[3]
