Fl. N. Amer.2: 250. 1842
se United States.
Species 2 (2 in the flora).
Bradburia was considered monotypic until recently. J. C. Semple and C. C. Chinnappa (1984) thought that one species, B. hirtella, was closely related to Chrysopsis pilosa but not to species of Heterotheca. G. L. Nesom (1991) included B. hirtella within Chrysopsis sect. Bradburia with C. pilosa. Semple (1996) maintained the genus as separate and transferred C. pilosa to Bradburia. In a cladistic study of subtribe Chrysopsidinae, Semple and L. Tebby (1999) found that the two species of Bradburia form a strongly supported group in a clade with Heterotheca and Croptilon, while Chrysopsis is in a clade with Pityopsis, the Mexican monotypic genus Tomentaurum G. L. Nesom, and the South American genus Noticastrum de Candolle.
