|Journal||Blumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants|
|Abstract||Dysolobium is a small legume genus, consisting of 4 species. It is closely related to Vigna, from which it differs by the shape of the wing petals and by the velvety, almost woody pods. Recently the genus has been divided into 2 subgenera, but in this paper the subgenus Dolichovigna is transferred back to Vigna.|
Possible relations between Dysolobium and genera as Vigna, Phaseolus, Canavalia, Dolichos, Psophocarpus, and Pueraria are discussed. Vigna seems to be the most closely related genus.
Dysolobium is a Southeast Asian genus, two species of which are endemic and two more widespread; one of the latter ranges from India to Java (not extending more eastwards). The plants prefer a climate with a seasonal drought.
Vigna pilosa is the only species in Vigna subgenus Dolichovigna. Vigna clarkei is excluded from this subgenus.
