The status of the Brazilian genus Kleinodendron Smith and Downs is reconsidered on the basis of studies of floral morphology, pollen characters, and wood anatomy. The plant does not belong to the tribe Clutieae but rather to the tribe Phyllantheae, and the genus cannot be separated from the genus Savia. Although there are some differences between the specimens of Kleinodendron from Santa Catarina and material of Savia dictyocarpa Muell. Arg. from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, the Santa Catarina populations are not sharply separable, and both the genus Kleinodendron and the species Kleinodendron riosulense must pass into synonymy.
