Bellardia trixago has been included in a monospecific section of Bartsia in the broad sense (U. Molau 1990). Morphology and molecular phylogenetic analyses indicate a close relationship among Bellardia, Parentucellia, and New World species of Bartsia (A. D. Wolfe et al. 2005; J. R. Bennett and S. Mathews 2006; S. Uribe-Convers and D. C. Tank, http://2010.botanyconference.org/engine/search/index.php?func=detail&aid=685; A. Scheunert et al. 2012). Molecular phylogenetic analyses suggest that South American Bartsia are nested within a highly supported clade including Bellardia and Parentucellia (Scheunert et al.). An expanded Bellardia includes P. latifolia (Linnaeus) Caruel, P. viscosa (Linnaeus) Caruel, and the South American species of Bartsia. After this treatment had been completed, the author became aware of the alternative view presented by Uribe-Convers and Tank (2016), where all of the South American Bartsia taxa are transferred to the new genus Neobartsia Uribe-Convers & Tank, Parentucellia is recognized, and Bellardia includes only B. trixago and B. viscosa.
