Pseudolachnostylis is a genus of plants in the Phyllanthaceae first described as a genus in 1899. It contains only one known species, Pseudolachnostylis maprouneifolia native to central and southern Africa. It bears small greenish white flowers. Fruit ovoid to subspherical, slightly ribbed as if about to split into six segments, yellow when ripe. Pseudolachnostylis maprouneifoloia is a larval food plant for the butterflies Abantis paradisea and Deudorix dinochares. During the flowering season, a variety of insects such as wasps and bees pollinate the flowers.

Kudu berry is at its best in autumn when it changes color to the most beautiful red. Extracts from the bark are used to treat diarrhoea. It has been used in the past to treat pneumonia. It can make a beautiful shade tree in parks and other public open spaces, especially in frost-free areas.

Propagate this tree from seed. In nature, the seeds germinate after they have gone through the digestive system of browsers. This plant is rare in cultivation but has a high horticultural potential.
