Talinella Baill. in Bull. Mens. Soc. Linn. Paris 1(69): 569. 1886 sec. Applequist (2005)

Notes

Unique in the suborder Portulacineae in having berry-like fruits. Molecular phylogenies show Talinella imbedded in Talinum (Hershkovitz & Zimmer 1997; Applequist & Wallace 2001; Nyffeler 2007; Nyffeler & Eggli 2010), but Nyffeler & Eggli (2010) suggest to accept the genus pending further research towards a deeply sampled phylogeny of Talinum. Recent treatments by Eggli (1997) and Applequist (2005).
