Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 4/24/2013)
Reference(s):

Generic Species Diversity and Endemism Status: has been evaluated
Accepted Published Species: 3 endemic

Additional Taxonomic Work: in progress
Species Level Data Entry: Complete
Notes: This genus was placed within the Neotropical genus Echinolaena Desv. by Clayton and Renvoize (1986) and this placement is accepted by Soreng et al. (2013) even though no DNA analysis has yet been carried out (Vorontsova & Rakotoarisoa, 2013). Camus' original reasons for describing this genus seem quite compelling, and until new evidence becomes available supporting lumping it in Echinolaena (or elsewhere) we prefer to maintain it. The three species accepted by Camus also seem quite acceptable.
