Bot. Not. 1892: . 1892
North America, Eurasia.
Species 5–7 (3 in the flora).
The circumscription of Bryhnia needs a re-evaluation with DNA markers since morphology seems to be misleading. In Japan and adjacent areas, N. Takaki (1956) accepted 15 species within Bryhnia, but only six survived the revision by A. Noguchi and Z. Iwatsuki (1987+); most were synonymized with B. novae-angliae. Among North American species, B. graminicolor is not closely related to the core group and possibly should be segregated in its own genus.
