A genus of two species long included in Rhus, from which they are easily distinguished by their simple leaves and by their fruiting panicles having long, thread-like, plumose ‘stalks’, which are in fact the elongated pedicels of sterile flowers. One species is from Europe and Asia; the other from eastern N. America.
