Mairia Nees, Gen. Sp. Aster. 247. (1832)

  • Type species: Mairia crenata (Thunb.) Nees. (1832)

Note: Originally proposed to be in Hinterhuberinae, but this is not supported by Brouillet et al., (2009) and so was left unplaced. Species circumscription sensu Herman & Zinnecker-Wiegand (2016) and Manning & Goldblatt (2012).

  • Continental: Africa
