Name

Heterosmilax Kunth, Enum. Pl. 5: 270 (1850)

Type species: Heterosmilax japonica Kunth, Enum. Pl. 5: 270 (1850) However, this species is now accepted as a synonym of Smilax bockii Warb., Bot. Jahrb. Syst. 29: 259 (1900), therefore typus non designatus

Synonyms

Heterotypic
Oligosmilax Seem., J. Bot. 6: 258 (1868)

Heterosmilax was considered a genus of flowering plants in the family Smilacaceae. It was native to southern China and Southeast Asia.[1][2] Subsequent molecular phylogenetic studies showed that it was embedded within another genus, Smilax and was reduced to a section within that genus. [3]
