The new endemic Malagasy genus Dupuya is proposed based on morphological characters. It has two species, D. haraka, comb. nov., and D. madagascariensis, comb. nov., and is distinguished from related genera in having no petals, numerous stamens, a whorl of staminodes inside the stamens, and a number of distinctive seed characters. A new combination is also made for Dupuya madagascariensis subsp. tamarindoides. Dupuya is a member of the aldinoid clade with the genera Aldina, Amburana, Cordyla, Dussia, Mildbraediodendron, and Myrospermum.
