A new genus, Xenophyllum, is de- scribed, which consists of 21 species extracted from Wernena s.l. (Compositae: Senecioneae). All members of this new genus are mat- or hummock-forming pe- rennials that grow at high elevations (3000-5200 m) in the Andes from Colombia to northern Argentina and northern Chile. Included is a brief description of the disposition of the species of Wernena s.l. and a preliminary key to those included in Xenophyllum. Wernena s.l. is a genus of 40 50 species that grows…

The first modern, comprehensive revision of this genus recognizing 27 species is presented here and an identification key to the species and a list of exsiccatae are also given.
Misbrookea, a new monotypic genus removed from Werneria s.1. (Compositae: Senecioneae)
A new genus is described based on a species formerly found in Werneria s.1. It is named after a collector, Miss Winifred M. A. Brooke. The new genus, Misbrookea, is confined to dry, high-elevation
Two new species of Werneria from Peru and re-circumscription of W. weberbaueriana (Compositae, Senecioneae)
Two new species of Werneria (Compositae, Senecioneae) are described from the highlands of central Peru on the basis of morphological evidence, namely W. huascarana and W. rockhauseniana. In addition,

Classification, diversity, and distribution of Chilean Asteraceae: implications for biogeography and conservation
TLDR
The biogeographical analysis provides important insights into the origin and evolution of the Chilean Asteraceae flora, with the presence of many localized and endemic taxa has direct conservation implications.
