Solanecio (Sch.Bip.) Walp.

Solanecio is a genus of African plants in the groundsel tribe within the sunflower family.[3][4]

The name "Solanecio" is a combination of the names "Solanum" and "Senecio," referring to the purported resemblance the species have to both of these established genera. Resemblance to Solanum is, of course, superficial.[5]
