The genus belongs to the tribe Euphorbieae subtribe Euphorbiinae in the subfamily Euphorbioideae, and is one of six satellite genera of Euphorbia. As traditionally suspected, molecular studies have demonstrated that Euphorbia is paraphyletic, and the satellite genera are nested within it. In order to create a classification of Euphorbieae subtribe Euphorbiinae that reflects evolutionary relationships and… CONTINUE READING
