Schwantesia is a genus of plant in the family Aizoaceae. It is named in honor of the German botanist and archaeologist Gustav Schwantes (1881 - 1960).
Schwantesia species resemble those genera within the Aizoaceae family to which they are most closely related; namely Lithops, Dinteranthus and Lapidaria.
