The taxonomic status ofSedum telephium and its allied species (Crassulaceae)

  • Hideaki Ohba


The taxonomic status ofSedum Telephium and its allied species (Crassulaceae-Sedoideae) is discussed, and a new genus,Hylotelephium, is recognized. Under the genus, 27 new combinations are proposed and one new species,H. callichromum, from Central Asia is described.
