Stamens 2, inserted slightly above throat; anthers 2-thecous; thecae equally to subequally inserted, parallel, subequal, base muticous; staminodes absent. Disk without an annulus. Capsule unknown.

Kudoacanthus was recently shown to pertain to the "Tetramerium lineage" of Justicieae (L. McDade et al., Amer. J. Bot. 95: 1136-1152. 2008). Whether K. albonervosa is generically distinct remains to be determined; it appears very similar to Leptostachya wallichii.
