    Note
    Segregate of Genista (see Gibbs, 1966); apparently basally branching in the Genistinae and polyphyletic in the analyses of Pardo et al. (2004), with two clades (the calcicolous and silicolous species groups) separately nested in or near to Genista. The authority is sometimes attributed to Fourreau, but the name is only mentioned by Fourreau in Ann. Soc. Linn. Lyon 16: 358 (1868)
