Notes

A new monotypic genus described in Sanchez & Kron (2011), based on morphological and molecular data. This genus is commonly found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay, and is characterized by a pronounced development of brachyblasts and the short axis of the inflorescences borne on a short shoot (Pendry 2004; Sanchez & Kron 2011). Molecular studies have strongly supported the placement of this genus as sister of a clade that includes Magoniella, Ruprechtia, and Triplaris (Burke & al. 2010; Sanchez & Kron 2011).A,B,C,D
