The genus Luzuriaga comprises four species, three from W Patagonia and subantarctic South America and one from New Zealand. After a survey of the taxonomic history of the genus, the leaf morphology, in particular venation and anatomy of the four species, are described and illustrated including SEM photographs of epidermal features. Two separate keys to the species based on macroscopic and microscopic leaf characters are provided.
