Note: Cabrera (1937, rev.) divided the genus into seven subgenera. Detailed work by Anderberg & Freire (1990) has added one minute species to the genus. Work by Davies & Facher (2001) has provided a useful view on the use of achene setulae in the systematics of the genus; a modern revision is currently being worked on.
