Archiatriplex in J. Arnold Arbor. 68: 461. 1987 sec. Kühn (1993)
This monotypic genus is only known from the northern Sichuan province of China, near Nanping (Chu 1987). Archiatriplex is interpreted as an ancient lineage of the Chenopodieae (formerly Atripliceae) based on molecular phylogenetic and morphological evidence (Kadereit & al. 2010).
