Plant Genera


Gentianella

Family Code: GENTIA
Genus Code: GENTI2
Genus CN: dwarf gentian
Genus Authority: Moench
Genus Summary: A genus of about 125-250 species, herbs, temperate. The separation of Gentianella from Gentiana appears to be well warranted; some characters suggest that Gentianella is more closely allied to Swertia, Halenia, and Lomatogonium than to Gentiana (Wood & Weaver 1982). A molecular analysis has confirmed this (Yuan & Kpfer 1995).
Genus References: Gillett (1957)=Z. Key based on Gillett (1957).
