Cottsia Dubard & Dop, Rev. Gén. Bot. 20: 359. (1908) emend. Anderson & Davis (2007)

  • Type species: Cottsia californica (Benth.) W.R.Anderson & C.Davis (2007) originally designated as synonym Cottsia scandens Dubard & Dop


  • Heterotypic
    • Janusia sect. Metajanusia Nied.,Verz.Vorles. Königl. Lyceum Hosianum Braunsberg 1912–1913: 50. (1912)
    • Gaudichaudia sect. Erostratae Chodat, Bull. Soc. Bot. Genève, Sér. 2, 9: 100. (1917) nom. superfl.
    • Aspicarpa subsect. Metajanusia (Nied.) Hassl., Annuaire Conserv. Jard. Bot. Genève 20: 212. (1918)

Note: Govaerts et al. (2020) prefer to maintain a synonymy with Janusia (1840), however, this would require the whole janusioid clade to be treated as one genus, in which case the name would have to be Aspicarpa (1815) Art 11.3 (Anderson & Davis, 2007)
