Acceptance : Accepted
Literature     (Last Modified On 11/20/2014)

Distribution     (Last Modified On 12/15/2014)
Generic distribution and diversity: About 50 species in tropical Africa, SE Asia, Malesia, Australia and the Pacific Islands. (From: Ridsdale 1996.)

Species status     (Last Modified On 12/15/2014)
Taxonomic notes: The generic delimitation is disputed. In its wider circumscription, the genus also includes woody climbers. These are, however, sometimes separated in distinct genera (e.g. Anomanthodia). The genus is easy recognized by the characteristic leaf and inflorescence sequence on its lateral branches. (From: Puff et al. 2005.)
