Mallotus s.str. is a monophyletic, large, palaeotropical genus in the family Euphorbiaceae. We investigated the phylogeny of the genus in order to (1) determine the evolutionary relationships within the Mallotus s.str. clade; (2) assess whether the six sections as circumscribed in the traditional classification reflect clades and evaluate the characters used in the classification; and (3) determine what are additional new clades and their supporting morphological characters. For this purpose we… 
The rise and fall of Sauropus (Phyllanthaceae) : a molecular phylogenetic analysis of Sauropus and allies
TLDR
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.
Systematic wood anatomy of the subfamily Acalyphoideae s.l. (Euphorbiaceae) from India, with remarks on synonymy
TLDR
Wood anatomical data turned out to solve the synonymic problem of Mallotus albus, MallotUS macrostachyus and Mallotu tetracoccus as well as Macaranga denticulata and Macaranges pustulata as the results indicate that these species are all distinct.
Leaf anatomy of Mallotus and the related genera Blumeodendron and Hancea (Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto)
TLDR
In this study, leaf anatomy is used to discuss the infrageneric delimitation of Mallotus and Hancea and to compare these genera with the more distantly related Blumeodendron.
Phylogenetic reconstruction prompts taxonomic changes in Sauropus, Synostemon and Breynia (Phyllanthaceae tribe Phyllantheae)
TLDR
Morphology confirms and makes the infrageneric groups recognisable within Breynia s.lat.str.
Leaf epidermis of the African genus Mallotus Lour. (Euphorbiaceae) section Rottleropsis Müll. Arg. and its systematic value
TLDR
The distant relationship indicated between M. oppositifolius and M. subulatus and the suggestion to subsume section Axenfeldia in the polyphyletic section Rottleropsis is upheld with some cross-referenced data; also, an indented dichotomous key for separating the three taxa is presented.
Dated Phylogenies of the Sister Genera Macaranga and Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae): Congruence in Historical Biogeographic Patterns?
TLDR
The two genera Macaranga and Mallotus show congruence in dispersal patterns, which corroborate divergence time estimates, although the overall mode and tempo of dispersal and diversification differ significantly as shown by distribution patterns of extant species.
The phylogenetic distribution of extrafloral nectaries in plants.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses strongly support the repeated gain and loss of EFNs across plant clades, especially in more derived dicot families, and suggest that EFNs are found in a minimum of 457 independent lineages.
Geometric morphometric character suites as phylogenetic data: extracting phylogenetic signal from gastropod shells.
TLDR
The inclusion of extinct Conus taxa into phylogenetic hypotheses will be possible, permitting a wide range of macroevolutionary questions to be addressed within this genus, and this methodology also has potential to contribute to phylogenetic reconstructions for other major components of the fossil record that lack numerous discrete characters.

A Phylogeny of Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae) Based on Morphology: Indications for a Pioneer Origin of Macaranga
TLDR
A phylogenetic parsimony analysis based on 76 morphological characters indicates that the genus Mallotus is possibly polyphyletic and that sections Hancea and Oliganthae should probably be excluded from MallotUS.
Molecular phylogeny of Macaranga, Mallotus, and related genera (Euphorbiaceae s.s.): insights from plastid and nuclear DNA sequence data.
TLDR
The analyses demonstrated the monophyly of Macaranga and the paraphyly of Mallotus and revealed three highly supported main clades, suggesting migrations or dispersals from Asia to Africa and Madagascar.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of uniovulate Euphorbiaceae (Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto) using plastid RBCL and TRNL-F DNA sequences.
TLDR
Parsimony and Bayesian analyses of plastid rbcL and trnL-F DNA sequence data of the pantropical family Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto (s.s.) show that two subfamilies, 14 tribes, and 10 genera were found to be para- or polyphyletic.
Themorphological range in Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae) and a taxonomic revision ofits section Rottleropsis (including Axenfeldia) in Malesia, Thailand and Africa .
TLDR
This paper concludes a series of taxonomic revisions of the genus Mallotus in Malesia and Thailand with a taxonomic revision of 38 species of sect.
Re-shaping Mallotus [Part 1]: Expanded circumscription and revision of the genus Cordemoya (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
Cordemoya (formerly monotypic with C. integrifolia from the Mascarene Islands) is expanded with sixteen additional species previously assigned to Mallotus, and two subgenera are recognized: Cordemoya from Madagascar and MASCarenes and Diplochlamys from Asia.
Re-shaping Mallotus [Part 2]: inclusion of Neotrewia, Octospermum and Trewia in Mallotus s.s. (Euphorbiaceae s.s.)
TLDR
It is shown that three small Asiatic genera are clearly part of a strongly supported main Mallotus clade (Mallotus s.s. clade), rendering the genus paraphyletic, and these genera, Neotrewia, Octospermum and Trewia are merged with mallotus.
Phylogenetics of Echinodorus (Alismataceae) based on morphological data
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Echinodorus genus was studied on the basis of 96 morphological characters and resulted in a single most-parsimonious tree supporting a polyphyletic origin of the genus.
A TAXONOMIC RevIsION Of MAllOTus seCTION PhIlIPPINeNses (fORMeR seCTION ROTTleRA - euPhORbIACeAe) IN MAlesIA AND ThAIlAND
TLDR
A revision of Mallotus section Philippinenses (former section Rottlera) in Malesia and Thailand is given, with five species recognised and a key to the species provided.
A taxonomic revision of Mallotus sections Hancea and Stylanthus (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
Mallotus sections Hancea and Stylanthus from Malesia are revised and M. oblongifolius is synonymised with M. peltatus, resulting in the exclusion of 4 species from this section.
A taxonomic revision of Mallotus section Polyadenii (Euphorbiaceae).
TLDR
The identification of species is difficult, especially of M. leucodermis and M. muticus, which are partly sympatric and only pistillate flowers or fruits provide reliable characters; specimens with staminate flowers are very difficult to identify.
