Notes:

These species were previously included in Pentas, which was more broadly circumscribed (Verdcourt, 1953). Kårehed & Bremer (2007) studied this group with molecular data and separated several genera; two are documented from Madagascar, Pentas and Phyllopentas with most of the Madagascar species now included in Phyllopentas. Many of the species of Phyllopentas have one or more calyx lobes of at least some of the flowers expanded into a petaloid lobe, but this structure is not found in all the species of this genus, nor all of the plants of some species.
