Notes:

Paracephaelis is characterized by its woody habit; interpetiolar triangular stipules; petiolate leaves that are often pubescent; terminal, shortly cymose, rounded, sessile to shortly pedunculate inflorescences; bisexual homostylous flowers; the tubular calyx with 5 triangular lobes; salverform to funnelform corollas with the 5 lobes contorted in bud; the ovary 2-locular, with 3-4 ovules in each locule; and berry-like fruits with the seeds reniform, somewhat flattened, and with entire endosperm. A single species, Paracephaelis sericea (Arènes) De Block was separated in the monospecific genus Homolliella, it differs from the other species by its well developed calyx tube, with rather short lobes; the usually sericeous to velutinous external surfaces of the corolla; and its ridged the ovary. However, recently De Block, et al. (2015) in a study which included molecular data concluded that it should not be separated.
