Tylophorinae K.Schum. in Engler & Prantl, Nat. Pflanzenfam. 4, 2: 209. (1895)


  • Homotypic
    • Tylophoreae Engl., Syllabus, ed. 2: 174. (1898)

Note: Endress et al. (2014), Liede-Schumann et al. (2012) and Liede-Schumann & Meve, (2018) proposed subsuming all of the above genera into Vincetoxicum s.l., except Pentatropis R. Br. ex Wight & Arn. in Wight, Contr. Bot. India: 52 (1834). The required formal transfers have now all been made (Liede-Schumann & Meve, 2018) resulting in a monotypic tribe and WS should be updated.
