Agrostemma, Sp. Pl. 1: 435. 1753 sec. Oxelman & al. (2001)
- ≡Githago, Fam. Pl. 2: 255. 1763 syn. sec. Oxelman & al. (2001)
- Type: Agrostemma githago
Two to three species, probably native in the Mediterranean region, but widely spread as agricultural weeds and/or ornamentals. Several phylogenetic studies (Oxelman & Lidén 1995; Oxelman & al. 1997; Fior & al. 2006; Greenberg & Donoghue 2011) strongly support Agrostemma as a sistergroup to the rest of the tribe Sileneae.
