The monotypic genus Androya was described in 1952 by Perrier de la Bathie as a genus of the Oleaceae; he saw only bistaminate flowers resembling those of some Oleaceae. When studying this remarkable plant Leenhouts transferred it to the tribe Buddlejeae of the Loganiaceae (1962). The present author follows Leenhouts after comparing it with all other genera of that tribe. All specimens examined show 4-staminate flowers some of which had lost their anthers by damage in the herbarium. With their subrotate corolla the flowers resemble very much those of Gomphostigma from South Africa. Besides, Androya shows affinity to Nuxia by its confluent anther cells.
