Tetramolopium Nees

Tetramolopium is a genus of plants in the composite family (Asteraceae). About 25 species are native to New Guinea, eleven species are found in Hawaii, and one in the Cook Islands, with the island populations apparently representing a recent (by evolutionary standards) colonization.[3] It is related to Camptacra, Kippistia, Minuria, Peripleura, and Vittadinia all of which are from Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, or Pacific islands.[4]
