Gyrocarpus Jacq.
    Select. Stirp. Amer. Hist. 282, pl. 178, f. 80: (1763).

Reference(s): Kubitzki, K. (1969)

Status: this genus has been assessed for the following:

- Species in Fl. Madag: not published

- Estimated undescribed species: 2 endemic

- Estimated total species: 2 endemic

- Indigenous species endemism: 100%

Additional taxonomic work: in progress

Species level data entry: not yet complete

Note: Previous treatments accept 3 subspp of the widespread G. americanus for Madagascar. However we believe these are quite distinct from material of the genus from other parts of the world and merit recognition as 2 or 3 endemic species. Valid species names for these taxa are not available, but an article on this topic is in preparation.
