Summary

A revision of the genus Premna is presented for the Flora Malesiana region. A key, descriptions, notes on ecology, distribution, local uses and names and conservation status are given for all 14 species occurring in the Flora Malesiana area. One new species, Premna clavata de Kok, is described. Four names are lectotypified, one neotypified and 71 names are placed into synonymy for the first time. Three names are treated as doubtful and four are excluded from the present definition of the genus.
