 The morphologically homogenous tribe Vanguerieae was investigated phylogenetically using sequence data from the Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region in the nuclear ribosomal DNA. Sequences from 41 Vanguerieae species representing 19 genera were produced, and a parsimony analysis was performed. The phylogenetic analysis has several clades with strong support, among which three new informal groups are discussed, i.e. the Vangueria group, the Fadogia-Rytigynia group and the Spiny group.
