Adamantinia is a monotypic genus of orchid (family Orchidaceae). The name is a reference to Chapada Diamantina, Brazil, where this species comes from.

The single species is native to the Serra do Sincorá range (Brazil, Bahia, South America). It grows as an epiphyte at sunny positions, at about 900m altitude. Plants bear more or less clustered unifoliate pseudobulbs (rarely bifoliate), coriaceous dark-olive leaves, and possess long inflorescences with successive flowering. Flowers are showy, pink, with similar petals and sepals and a showy dark pink lip, with very small side lobes. Column is short, with a broad stigma.
