  • Type species:  Eucarpha strobilina typus Embothrium strobilinum Labill. Nov. Holl. Pl. 2: 116, t. 265. (1806), which is also the basionym of Knightia strobilina (Labill. ) Virot Fl. Nouv.-Calédonie & Dépend. 2: 243. (1968)

Note: This cryptic genus was not allocated to a subtribe by Weston & Barker (2006) and was designated by them as Roupaleae incertae sedis. In addition, it is poorly treated by other authorities and this circumscription must be seen as tentative. See also Johnson & Briggs, (1975).
