Abstract

The genus Eremothamnus has been classified in several tribes, in recent times either in the Arctoteae or in a new tribe Eremothamneae; because of its isolated position within the family, it has also been left unclassified as to tribe. Chloroplast DNA restriction site data for Eremothamnus, suitable for comparison with similar data provided in the literature for other genera of the Asteraceae, and the rbcL gene sequence for Eremothamnus when compared with those of other Asteraceae, both indicate that Eremothamnus is related to the Arctoteae and may be classified in that tribe.
