Plant Genera


Family Code: LAMIAC
Genus Code: CUNIL
Genus CN: cunila
Genus Authority: D. Royen ex L.
Genus Summary: A genus of 1 or 9 species, of e. North America (1 species) and (depending on circumscription) Mexico (8 species). Agostini, Echeverrigaray, & Souza-Chies (2012) and Drew & Sytsma (2012) show that the South American species previously included in Cunila definitely do not belong there, and that Cunila may best be treated as monophyletic, including only our species (the 8 Mexican species removed to a new genus).
