Notes

A poorly studied genus of annual herbs from Central and South America and the Antilles. The number of species is estimated to about 12 (Schäferhoff & al. 2011); a modern monograph is lacking. Microtea was found in an isolated phylogenetic position (Schäferhoff & al. 2011; two species have been sampled).
