A genus of three species, two in the Paleotropics and one in the Neotropics. Members of this genus were previously placed in Papillaria. The strongly auriculate, cordate leaf base and the half twisted leaf ápex aid in distiguishing the genus frrom other members of the family.


Un género de tres especies, dos en el Paleotrópico y una en el Neotrópico, Toloxis imponderosa (Taylor) W.R. Buck. Miembros de este género estaban previamente localizados en Papillaria. Las bases de las hojas marcadamente auriculadas, cordadas y ápices medio torcidos ayudan a distinguir fácilmente esta especie de los otros miembros de la familia.
