A genus of a single species bearing some resemblance to Leiophyllum but distinguished by its united petals and by its five (not ten) stamens, included in the corolla. Linnaeus described this species in his genus Azalea (now included in Rhododendron) but L.oiseleuria differs from Rhododendron in its opposite leaves and in having anthers that open by slits, not pores.
