Notes

The Central-Asian genus Acroglochin represents an ancient lineage in Chenopodiaceae and stands phylogenetically isolated from other subfamilies (Hohmann & al. 2006; Kadereit & al. 2012, online supplement). The genus was formerly included in Betoideae and should probably be classified as a subfamily of its own.A,B,C
