Myrceugenia is a genus of evergreen woody flowering trees and shrubs belonging to the Myrtle family, Myrtaceae. The genus is native to South America from southeast Brazil south to southern Chile; it is closely related to the genus Luma; some botanists include Myrceugenia in that genus.

Two species are endemic to the Juan Fernandez Islands in the Pacific ocean west of the Chilean coast. M. fernandeziana is endemic to Robinson Crusoe Island and M. schulzei to Alejandro Selkirk Island, where they are prominent trees in the lowland and lower montane forests of the islands.
