Spathicarpa is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae, all of which are endemic to South America. Spathicarpa species are notable for strongly reduced flowers arranged in a spike. This spike is then usually subtended by a large bract called a spathe which often serves to attract pollinators as a pseudo-petal.
