Elaeocarpus bojeri, also known under the common name Bois Dentelle (lit.: wood lace, descriptive of its delicate white flowers) is a species of flowering plant in the Elaeocarpaceae family, growing to a height of 3 m. It flowers from July to September.
The species is found only in Mauritius, where fewer than 10 individuals are known to exist at Ganga Talao; it is listed as one of The World's 100 Most Threatened Species. It is not threatened because it is itself exploited, but because its environment is being overrun by more commercially attractive alien species such as Guava and Litsea monopetala.
