Reduction of Breynia subgenus Hemisauropus to B. section Cryptogynium and discussion of the B. quadrangularis complex (Phyllanthaceae)
Breynia subgenus Hemisauropus is reduced to Breynia section Cryptogynium. Arguments are given to regard the Breynia quadrangularis complex as a single species.
Phylogenetic reconstruction prompts taxonomic changes in Sauropus, Synostemon and Breynia (Phyllanthaceae tribe Phyllantheae)
Morphology confirms and makes the infrageneric groups recognisable within Breynia
Molecular data consistently recover a ‘Queensland clade’ of Synostemon (Phyllanthaceae, Phyllantheae) with distinctive floral morphology
Abstract. Molecular analysis of the newly reinstated genus Synostemon F.Muell. (Phyllanthaceae, Phyllantheae), using ITS sequence data from the now densely sampled genus, confirmed that the


The rise and fall of Sauropus (Phyllanthaceae) : a molecular phylogenetic analysis of Sauropus and allies
The molecular phylogenetic analyses show that Sauropus in the broad sense is composed of two distinct groups, the former Australian Synostemon and the Southeast Asian SauropUS in the strict sense with the monophyletic Breynia embedded in the latter.
Delimitation of Sauropus (Phyllanthaceae) based on plastid matK and nuclear ribosomal ITS DNA Sequence data.
Molecular data indicate that Synostemon should be reinstated at the same level as Sauropus s.s. and that Sauropu s.
Phylogenetics of tribe Phyllantheae (Phyllanthaceae; Euphorbiaceae sensu lato) based on nrITS and plastid matK DNA sequence data.
Phylogenetic relationships within tribe Phyllantheae, the largest tribe of the family Phyllanthaceae, were examined with special emphasis on the large genus Phyllanthus, and taxonomic divisions based on similar pollen morphology are confirmed, and related taxa share similar distributions.
