Note: The proposed segregation of Nothofagus s.l. by Heenan, & Smissen, (2013) into 4 genera is gaining some acceptance, particularly in New Zealand with their native species (Breitwieser et al. (2014)) and their circumscription is shown here. However, as Heenan, & Smissen accept in their paper, the maintenance of the status quo, i.e. Nothofagus s.l, is not unreasonable and the segragation has yet to gain universal acceptance (Vergara et al. (2014).

Breitwieser, Heenan & Smissen are all botanists for Landcare Research, so it is not surprising that Breitwieser et. al. accept the changes of Heenan, & Smissen. This is not independent agreement. Stho002 (talk) 22:13, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

The segregation into minor genera is generally accepted in New Zealand but less so elsewhere. Andyboorman (talk) 14:23, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
