Ophrestia Forbes
    Bothalia 4: 1003 (1948).

  • Paraglycine F. J. Herm.
  • Pseudoglycine F. J. Herm.

    Reference(s): Du Puy, D. J., J.-N. Labat, R. Rabevohitra, J.-F. Villiers, J. Bosser & J. Moat (2002)

    Status: this genus has been assessed for the following:

    - Species in Fl. Madag: not published

    - Accepted published species: 4 endemic

    - Estimated total species: 4 endemic

    - Indigenous species endemism: 100%

    Additional taxonomic work: not currently required

    Species level data entry: complete

    Note: Hermann(1962) assigned two of the Malagasy species to separate genera as Paraglycine madagascariensis and Pseudoglycine lyallii. Both were later transferred to Ophrestia by Vedcourt (1970), and this decision is supported here.
