Peregrina is proposed to accommodate the single species Peregrina linearifolia, which has been assigned to four related genera since its discovery. Peregrina is probably derived from Janusia, but its unique samara with equally well-developed dorsal and lateral wings, somewhat similar to that of Gaudichaudia, makes it necessary to segregate the species as a distinct genus.
