Blotia Leandri
    Mem. Inst. Sci. Madagascar, Ser. B, Biol. Veg. 8: 240 (1957).

Reference(s): Hoffmann, P. & G. McPherson (1998)

Status: this genus has been assessed for the following:

- Species in Fl. Madag: 5 endemic

- Accepted published species: 5 endemic

- Estimated total species: 5 endemic

- Indigenous species endemism: 100%

Species level data entry: not yet complete

Note: We follow the broad view of species circumscription taken by Hoffman and McPherson, however we note that several of their species overlap geographically, and morphological characters are not always clear-cut. Certain species require re-evaluation in the light of the available new material. McPherson (pers. comm. 2005) suggests that the genus may eventually be united with Wielandia.
