Based on more than 1,000 collections of Drosanthemum and studies of all 131 type sheets and drawings, a new subdivision into eight subgenera is offered for the genus, using mainly fruit and flower types to recognize the separate units. In this way, a base is laid for a more in-depth study of the genus of c. 130 recognized species. The new subgenera are D. subg. Drosanthemum, D. subg. Lutea H.E.K. Hartmann, D. subg. Necopina H.E.K.Hartmann, D. subg. Ossicula H.E.K.Hartmann, D. subg. Quastea H.E.K.Hartmann, D. subg. Speciosa H.E.K.Hartmann, D. subg. Vespertina H.E.K. Hartmann, and D. subg. Xamera H.E.K. Hartmann. For the first time, the distribution maps are created with the new program Taxo2Map from an ACCESS databank.
