Perrottetia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Dipentodontaceae described as a family in 1824.[2][1][4] Species occur in China, Southeast Asia, Papuasia, Hawaii, Australia, and Latin America.[3][5][6] It is the largest genus of the recently described order Huerteales.


This genus was previously placed in the staff vine family, Celastraceae.,[2] but molecular evidence has shown that it not related and better placed with ''Dipentodon'' in a separate family Dipentodontaceae.
