Pyankovia is a recent segregate of Salsola s.l. and Climacoptera; it was initially described as a monotypic genus (Akhani & al. 2007). Further studies showed that the genus contains more than one species (Wen & al. 2010). There are probably at least three species distributed from southeasternmost Europe thorough the Caspian area, the Caucasus, and Iran to Central Asia (S. Mosyakin, unpubl. data).
