A genus of six species, all natives of New Zealand (one extending to some of the islands of the S.W. Pacific, the others endemic). It is allied to Hymenanthera but differs in its free anthers and almost sessile, three- to eight-lobed stigma (but one species, not treated here, is anomalous and in some respects intermediate between the two genera).
