Ctenodon Baillon.

Key to Ctenodon

A genus of 66 or perhaps 120 species, herbs, subshrubs, shrubs, treelets or small trees, of s. North America, Central America, South America, and the West Indies. The genus has often been treated as Aeschynomene sect. Ochopodium, but is more closely related to Dalbergia and Machaerium than to Aeschynomene sensu stricto. It may be expanded to include taxa in the Old World tropics (Cardoso et al. 2020).
