This paper provides a practical taxonomic treatment of the polyphyletic genus Centaurium Hill. This new classification defines monophyletic groups and thus reflects the phylogenetic relationships within the subtribe Chironiinae (Gentianaceae). For this purpose, the establishment of a new genus, Zeltnera, along with the reinstatement of Gyrandra Griseb. and Schenkia Griseb., results in numerous new species combinations, a more restrictive circumscription of Centaurium Hill, and novel generic… Expand
