Knightia is a small genus of the family Proteaceae endemic to New Zealand, and named in honor of Thomas Andrew Knight.[5] One extant species, K. excelsa (Rewarewa) is found in New Zealand, while a fossil species from upper Miocene deposits in Kaikorai has been described as Knightia oblonga.[6] Two species from New Caledonia, described in the genus Knightia have been placed in the genus Eucarpha by Lawrie Johnson and Barbara Briggs in their influential 1975 monograph "On the Proteaceae: the evolution and classification of a southern family".,[7] although the nomenclatural combinations have never been published as of today.
