Circumscription sensu Sinn et al., (2015). This sectio is consistently recognised at the generic level. However, Hexastylis sorriei Gaddy, Phytoneuron 2011–47: 2. (2011) has no valid equivalent combination in Asarum according to IPNI in spite of the combination Asarum sorriei being published in Sinn (2015).
