Genus Summary: A genus of about 22-25 species, herbs, of temperate and tropical areas, primarily Old World. Spooner et al. (2013) suggest a slightly broader circumscription of the genus. Our two species, the European D. carota (2n=18) and the native D. pusillus (2n=22) are in the two separate clades within the genus (Spoooner et al. 2013).
