CLASSIFICATION OF VERONICEAE

This classification of Veroniceae is mostly accomplished by Dirk Albach and Montserrat Martínez-Ortega and still preliminary. It shall here give a provisional overview of our understanding at the moment, which taxa should be recognized.

The following genera are included in Veroniceae. Click on the name to see its position in our classification:

Beccabunga,Besseya,Botryopleuron,Calorhabdos,Chionohebe,Cochlidiosperma,Derwentia,Detzneria,Falconeria, Gymnandra, Hebe, Heliohebe, Kashmiria, Kokoneria, Lagotis, Leonohebe, Leptandra, Neopicrorhiza, Oligospermum, Paederota, Paederotella, Parahebe, Picrorhiza, Pseudolysimachion, Scrofella, Synthyris, Veronica, Veronicastrum, Veronicella, Wulfenia, Wulfeniopsis
