Plant Genera


Family Code: CYRILL
Genus Code: CYRIL
Genus CN: titi
Genus Authority: Garden ex L.
Genus Summary: A genus of 3-10 (or more) species, trees and shrubs, of warm temperate to tropical North America, the West Indies, and n. South America. The most recent monographer (Thomas 1960) treated Cyrilla as monotypic, clearly the diversity of habit (from subshrubs to large forest trees) and floral structure warrant the recognition of multiple taxa at specific rank; the genus is badly in need of modern study.
Genus References: Lemke in FNA (2009); Kurz & Godfrey (1962)=Z; Thomas (1960)=Y; Small (1924b)=X; Kubitzki in Kubitzki (2004).
