Bejaria is widespread in Latin America, where it is an important component of the subparamo flora. Bejaria racemosa is placed in the monotypic section Racemosae Fendchenko & Basilevskaja because of its chartaceous leaves without prominent abaxial midveins and the inflorescence that appears stalked because of the marked reduction in leaf size below the inflorescence. The original spelling, Befaria, has been shown to be an orthographic error.
