Notes

Ceratolimon, a segregate from Limoniastrum, includes four species of dwarf shrubs with disjunct distributions on the Atlantic and Indian edges of the Sahara Desert (Crespo & Lledó 2000). Three species sampled by Lledó & al. (2000) formed a well supported clade, that is sister to Limoniastrum.
