Osmelia is a genus of flowering plants in the willow family, Salicaceae.[1] Osmelia includes four species of trees native to Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia.[2][3] Osmelia is closely related to the monotypic Pseudosmelia of Morotai and Halmahera of the Indonesian Maluku Islands and to the monotypic Ophiobotrys from west and west-central tropical Africa.
