Notes

Halogeton belongs to Salsoleae s.str. and is likely monophyletic (Akhani & al. 2007). This Eurasian genus, one species of which is also found in the southwestern and partly central United States as a widespread invasive alien, comprises c. five annual and perennial species and is often found in saline habitats.
