Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 2/3/2018)
Reference(s):
Generic Distribution: not endemic to the Malagasy Region
Generic Species Diversity and Endemism Status: has not yet been evaluated
No. of species in Fl. Madagasc.: not published
Accepted Published Species: 48 (47 endemic, 1 indigenous non-endemic)
Additional Taxonomic Work: in progress
Species Level Data Entry: complete
Notes:

Two broad groups of species can be distinguished: Group 1: plants with relatively large flowers and relatively small racemose or paniculate inflorescences; and Group 2: plants generally with small flowers in large well-branched paniculés cymes. Numerous spp are exploited for their timber and are known in Madagascar as "Bois de rose" (Rosewood) or "Palissandre" (Palisander). Many of these are threatened through over-exploiation and illegal logging.

Recently it has become clear that the existing taxonomy of the genus requires revision and the delimitation of certain species is problematic. Collaborative efforts are now underway to address these issues, and will be incorporated here as they move forward.
