Oxanthera is a genus of flowering plants in the citrus family, Rutaceae. They are endemic to New Caledonia. They are known commonly as false oranges.[1]

Phylogenetic analysis has shown these species to cluster in the same clade as Clymenia and the Australian limes within Citrus, which would also make these species members of that genus,[1] and relegate Oxanthera to a subgenus.

Species include:[2][3]
