Aizopsis

See list of 2 species in this genus

Aizopsis has been treated as part of Phedimus. However, base chromosome number ( x=16 vs. x=14), petal color (yellow vs. white or pink), petal orientation (spreading from base vs. erect 
at base), and distribution (primarily Asian vs. primarily European) justify Aizopsis being treated as distinct from Phedimus. Reference: Gontcharova et al. (2006).

  • 1a. Roots tuberous, carrot-shaped; leaf blades narrow-lanceolate to elliptic-lanceolate or oblong-lanceolate (i.e., usually widest at or below the middle); stems erect, 20–50 cm tall; sepals linear
  • 1b. Roots not tuberous, relatively slender; leaf blades oblanceolate to obovate or spatulate (i.e., widest above the middle) [Fig. 596]; stems decumbent, 15–40 cm tall; sepals lanceolate
