Species

Greyia is a genus of plant in family Melianthaceae. It contains three species:

Unlike other members of the Melianthaceae, Greyia has simple (undivided) leaves, flowers with ten stamens, and ovaries with parietal placentation.[1] Because of this, the genus has sometimes been placed in a separate family Greyiaceae, but under the APG II system of classification, it is included in the Melianthaceae.
