Notes

The genus Gymnopodium was originally described with three species, growing as shrubs or small trees on limestone soils in Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico (Blake 1921; Brandbyge 1993). Sanchez & al. (2009) and Burke & al. (2010) showed that Gymnopodium is strongly supported as monophyletic in the subfamily Eriogonoideae (sec. Burke & Sanchez 2011), and that based on leaf shape and pubescence characters, the genus should be recognized with only one polymorphic species (Burke & Sanchez 2011).A,B,C,D,E,F
