Gisekia L. Mant. Pl. 2: 554, 562. (1771)

  • Type species: Gisekia pharnaceoides L. Mant. Pl. 2: 554, 562. (1771)

Note: Bissinger et al., (2014) found all species to be polyphyletic and suggest they all be subsumed into an expanded polymorphic Gisekia pharnaceoides or a Gisekia pharnaceoides aggregate - see also Hernández-Ledesma et al., (2015).
