The following synopsis of the genus is based on a combination of van Slageren (1994; taxa and distribution) and Dvorak (1998; genomic constitution).   Dvorak provides information on previous interpretations that I have not included here.  For information on the assignment of genome symbols, click here.  The species are arranged alphabetically. 

One day the names will be linked to pictures.  But not today.  Whenever today is.
