Eucalyptopsis is a genus of two described species of trees, constituting part of the plant family Myrtaceae and included in the Eucalypts group. They have botanical records of growing naturally in New Guinea and the Moluccas, within the Malesia region. Plant geneticists have found their closest evolutionary relatives in the monotypic genera and species Stockwellia quadrifida and Allosyncarpia ternata.
