A genus of two species; one, described here, native of the Mediterranean region, the other of the Canary Islands. It is the sole representative in Europe of the tribe Podalyriae, which has its centre in S. Africa and Australia. Among the papilionate genera, this group is distinguished by the combination of simple or palmate (not pinnate) leaves, and free stamens.
