Centunculus Linnaeus. Chaffweed, Pimpernel.

Key to Centunculus

A genus of about 25 species, annual and perennial herbs, semi-cosmopolitan in distribution. Recently, Centunculus has often been submerged into Anagallis, or both submerged into a very broad Lysimachia. We here recognize it, but with an augmented circumscription including many species (outside our area) traditionally placed in Anagallis, following the phylogenetic results of Yan et al. (2019)
