SUBGENUS Myoxanthus SECTION Antennella Luer 1992

This section has ramicauls produbed from a rhizome that varies from being very short to produce a cespitose habit to elongate to produce a shortly repent to long-repent habit. The flowers are produced successively, one, two to three at a time. The apices of the petals are commonly thickenedor clavate.

SUBGENUS Myoxanthus SECTION Scandentia Luer 1992

This section contains the scandent species of the genus that produce the ramicauls from the apex of the preceding ramicaul instead of froma rhizome. The lowermost ramicaul produces the roots and it is ususally much longer that the upper ramicauls. The shorter upper ramicauls are often produced in fasciles of a few to many from the apex of a lower ramicaul.

SUBGENUS Myoxanthus SECTION Myoxanthus

The ramicauls of this section are produced from a rhizome that varies from being very short to produce a caespitose habit, to elongate to produce a shortly repent habit. A few to many flowers are produced simultaneously in a congested fascile.
