A taxonomic revision of the Malesian genus Creochiton (Melastomataceae) is presented. Twelve species are recognized, although one is based on the original description only. Creochiton turbinatus (comb. nov.) is raised to specific rank from a variety of C. ledermannii. A key to the species, descriptions, ecological habitats, distributions (with maps), synonymy, taxonomic notes, vernacular names and an index to collections are provided.
