Mitrastigma was a monotypic genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family but is no longer recognized. It was originally described by William Henry Harvey in 1842.

It was sunk into synonymy with the genus "Psydrax", where "Mitrastigma lucidum" now appears as the species "Psydrax" obovata (Klotzsch ex Eckl. &
Maytenus nemorosa (Eckl. &
.) Marais, is a spiny, somewhat sprawling evergreen shrub or small tree with drooping branches growing to some 5 m tall and found along forest edges in Mpumalanga, Swaziland, KwaZulu-Natal south to the Garden Route in the Southern Cape.

In an introduction by the Prussian Ernst H. F. Meyer (1791-1858), who was at that time professor of botany at Königsberg, an attempt is made for the first time to divide the vegetation of the Cape Colony into phytogeographical zones. Rudolf Marloth referred to him as "the father of South African phytogeography". Harry Bolus and Peter MacOwan praised his meticulous collecting and his astounding zest in covering vast areas of the countryside. In total he collected over 200 000 specimens embracing some 8 000 species. He is commemorated in "Dregea" Eckl. &

Pallas collected only a handful of plants during his lifetime. Poleman, though, was an active collector, and Lichtenstein during his 1802-1806 stay at the Cape, made regular Sunday collecting excursions in the company of Poleman. As a result of these botanical forays, and when Lichtenstein became director of the Berlin Zoological Museum, he realised that he could greatly enrich the Museum's collections by sending enthusiastic young naturalists as assistants to "Pallas & Poleman". Poleman went up Table Mountain with Burchell during the latter's stay in Cape Town before his 5-year odyssey over Southern Africa. Poleman was also on friendly terms with William Henry Harvey, the Irish botanist, and Christian Ignatius Latrobe, the Moravian clergyman, artist, musician and composer. Poleman died in Cape Town on 16 April 1839. He was commemorated in the Apiaceae genus "Polemannia" created by Eckl. &
