Asteraceae tribe Mutisieae

Mutisieae as traditionally circumscribed is now considered to be polyphyletic.

   Molecular work has shown that Barnadesia and its allies, a South American group formerly placed
   in Mutisieae, constitute the basal clade of the family; they are now treated as a distinct
   subfamily, Barnadesioideae (K. Bremer and R. K. Jansen 1992). Similarly, J. L. Panero and V. A.
   Funk (2002) segregated two additional subfamilies from Mutisieae (based on Gochnatia and on
   Hecastocleis). Mutisieae in the broad sense are centered in the New World tropics and subtropics
   and are relatively poorly represented elsewhere.
