Aspilia Thouars, Gen. Nova Madag. 12: 17 (1806).

Type: Aspilia thouarsii DC.

Note: Following the mass transfer of species from Aspilia to Wedelia by Robinson (1992) and Turner (1992) the synonymy of this genus will have to be re-assessed. It is more than likely that the South American element of this genus belongs to another genus entirely, the remnants only belonging in Aspilia. Some of Turners combinations were illegitimate and need to be re-examined.

Note: Santos (2001: 197) also placed Viguiera asperrima Gardner into synonymy of A. attenuata, although it is also clear that Robinson (1984: 270) clearly regarded them as separate when comparing his new A. pseudoviguiera. Clearly a closer examination of material is necessary to support either Santos or Robinsons hypothesis.

Note: Santos (2001) placed both A. simpsonae H. Rob. and A. vieirae H. Rob. into synonymy of A. leucoglossa. I do not concur with this and keep the species separate in this checklist, the leaf shape, if nothing more, being significantly different.
