    Note
    Pityrocarpa was first described as a section of the genus Piptadenia by Bentham and Hooker in 1875. It was subsequently raised to the status of genus by Britton & Rose in 1928. Thereafter it was reassigned the rank of section. Most recently, Jobson and Luckow (2007) proposed reinstating Pityrocarpa as a genus based on molecular evidence, to include 3 species and one subspecies.
