Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 12/11/2010)
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.: 3 (2 endemic, 1 indigenous non-endemic)
Accepted Published Species: 4 (2 endemic, 2 indigenous non-endemic)
Estimated Undescribed Species: none
Estimated Total Species: 4 (2 endemic, 2 indigenous non-endemic)
Additional Taxonomic Work: in progress
Species Level Data Entry: Not yet complete
Notes: Molvray (1997) merged the endemic Malagasy species K. madagascarica and K. commersonii into very large species concept based on a molecular phylogenetic study published in 1999. None of the Malagasy species were included in the molecular phylogeny. An examination of the collections available incl. type specimen show that further taxonomic work is required to understand the Malagasy species. Four species seem to occur in Madagascar.
