*Reynoutria Houttuyn. Subfamily: Polygonoideae. Tribe: Polygoneae. Subtribe: Reynoutriinae.

Key to Reynoutria

A genus of about 15 species, perennial herbs, of temperate e. Asia. Ronse Decraene & Akeroyd (1988) and some other recent workers in Polygonaceae treat this group as Fallopia section Reynoutria (Houttuyn) Ronse Decraene, but molecular evidence supports its recognition at genus rank, as a monophyletic genus sister to a clade consisting of Parogonum, Fallopia, and Muehlenbeckia (Desjardins et al. 2023; Schuster, Wilson, & Kron 2011). All four genera could be lumped together as a larger monophyletic genus, but no one has proposed combining the Southern Hemisphere and morphologically discordant Muehlenbeckia with Fallopia, etc.
