Endotropis Rafinesque. American Buckthorn.

Key to Endotropis

A genus of about 5 species, shrubs and small trees, of North America (including Mexico). Hauenschild et al. (2016b) discussed at length the rationale for recognizing Ventia and Frangula (in our flora) and Oreoherzogia as genera separate from Rhamnus. Hauenschild (2016c) corrected the name of Ventia to Endotropis Rafinesque and Oreoherzogia to Atadinus Rafinesque.
