Anthenantia Palisot de Beauvois. Silkyscale.

Key to Anthenantia

A genus of 4-5 species, of se. North America and tropical America, if Leptocoryphium is included in Anthenantia, as it appears it should be (Acosta et al. 2014). Clayton & Renvoize (1986) state that "Anthenantia is the etymologically correct version of three alternative spellings given by Beauvois". Anthenantia has a C4 photosynthetic pathway.
