Anthaenantia

Family Code: POACEA
Genus Code: ANTHA
Genus CN: silkyscale
Genus Authority: P. Beauv.
Genus Summary: A genus of 4-5 species, of se. North America and tropical America, if Leptocoryphium is included in Anthaenantia, as it appears it should be (Acosta et al. 2014). Clayton & Renvoize (1986) state that "Anthenantia is the etymologically correct version of three alternative spellings given by Beauvois"; but this does not give it preference. Anthaenantia has a C4 photosynthetic pathway.
Genus References: Acosta et al. (2014); Wipff in FNA (2003a); Crins (1991)=Z; Kral (2004)=Y; Clayton & Renvoize (1986).
