Nanopanax A. Haines. Dwarf Ginseng.

A monotypic genus, native of eastern North America. Nanopanax trifolius has long been seen as a morphological outlier in Panax, and recent phylogenetic studies reveal it as sister to the remainder of the genus (Zuo, Wen, & Zhou 2017). The many morphological differences (see Panax or Araliaceae key, for instance) warrant its recognition as a separate genus (Haines 2020a)
