Caryodaphnopsis Airy-Shaw, a genus previously known only from southeastern Asia, is reported to occur in the Neotropics and is represented there by two species, Caryodaphnopsis theobromifolia (Gentry) van der Werff & Richter and C. inaequalis (A. C. Smith) van der Werff & Richter. Both species were originally described in Persea, but floral and wood anatomical characters indicate they belong in Caryodaphnopsis.
