17. Doellingeria Nees

Three species, U.S., Canada.

Doellingeria was long treated by most North American botanists as a relatively distinctive small subgenus within a broadly circumscribed Aster. Molecular analyses have suggested that the group comprises the most primitive lineage of North American asters (Noyes and Rieseberg, 1999; Semple et al., 2002). There has been some controversy over whether eight closely related Asian species should be included in the genus (Nesom, 1993b, 1994, 2000), but the most recent studies indicate that the Asian species are more closely related to other Old World asters.
