Notes

Halimocnemis is an aggregate of Irano-Turanian annual species which is phylogenetically not well resolved. Based on phylogenetic studies (Akhani & al. 2007), a broad concept was adopted in which Halanthium, Halotis and Gamanthus are included. Further phylogenetic studies are required for possible inclusion of genera such as Piptoptera, Halarchon, and Physandra.
