Note
It is possible that all the species (if such they be) recorded below, except T. zernyi, belong to one section of the genus, characterized by very elongated pedicels in the infructescences The attention of field workers is called to the need for such material. Unfortunately, fruiting material is not available for all the species and fruiting and flowering material from the same plant is practically non-existent in herbaria
