Blepharidium
provided by wikipedia EN

Blepharidium is a monotypic genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family. The genus contains only one species, viz. Blepharidium guatemalense, which is native to Guatemala, Honduras and southern Mexico (Chiapas, Campeche, Tabasco).[2] Older works might mention two species (viz. B. guatemalense and B. mexicanum).[3]

Systematics

Blepharidium was named by Paul Standley in 1918.[4] The name is derived from the Ancient Greek words blepharitis or blepharidos, meaning "on an eyelid". The similar term, blepharis means "an eyelash".[5]

A cladistic analysis of morphological characters found Blepharidium to be closely related to Cosmibuena, Balmea, and Hillia,[6] but a molecular phylogenetic study placed it closer to Rondeletia.[7]
