USDA: GRIN Taxonomy for Plants (23 March 2006)

The Anubiadeae are a tribe of the family Araceae, subfamily Aroideae. The tribe was first described in 1879 by Adolf Engler and contained only the genus Anubias Schott.[1] In 1915, Engler added the genus Amauriella Rendle. The two genera were distinguished by the position of the thecae on the synandria (fused anthers).[2] The latest taxonomic revision regards Amauriella as a synonym of Anubias,[3] leaving this a monogeneric tribe. The Anubiadeae are aquatic and semi-aquatic plants and are native to tropical central and western Africa. They primarily grow in rivers and streams, but can also be found in marshes.[3]
