Wikipedia Abstract

Platycarpha is a genus of South African plants dandelion subfamily within the daisy family. Recent studies have suggested splitting Platycarpha into two genera, Platycarpha and Platycarphella. Further work remains to be done to resolve this. The systematic position of Platycarpha has long been regarded with uncertainty. Most authors have placed it in the tribe Arctotideae until molecular phylogenetic studies showed it to be closer to Vernonieae. In 2009, the new tribe Platycarpheae was established for Platycarpha and Platycarphella.
