Genus Summary: A genus of about 12-15 species, herbs, of se. North America, Mexico, and the Bahamas. This remains a difficult and rather poorly understood group. The appropriate taxonomic status of many of the entities remains unclear; for the moment, I am recognizing a number of entities at the specific level, the appropriate nomenclatural combinations not already available in all cases.
Genus References: Semple in FNA (2006b); Semple (1981)=Z; Harms (1974)=Y; Semple (1996)=X; Cronquist (1980)=SE; Nesom (2000b); DeLaney, Wunderlin, & Semple (2003). Key adapted from Semple (1981) and Semple in FNA (2006b). [also see Bradburia, Heterotheca and Pityopsis]
