  • Homotypic
    • Hibiscus sect. Abelmoschus (Medik.) DC., Prodr. 1: 449. 1824.
    • Hibiscus sect. Abelmoschus (Medik.) Benth. & Hook.f., Gen. Pl. 1(1).: 208. 1862, nom. superfl.


The genus is nested within Hibiscus and cannot be maintained unless Hibiscus is split into several genera (Pfeil & al. 2002). However, this is not accepted and most authorities maintain its segregation pending further work - see Hassler (2018).
