Species In Genus: 14--21 species: eastern North America. Etymology: (Greek: bedbug-like, from fruit) Note: Coreopsis wrightii (A. Gray) E.B. Sm. not naturalized in California. Native species moved to Leptosyne.
Unabridged Note: Coreopsis, as recognized in TJM (1993), is polyphyletic. Escaped ornamental species in California all belong to a clade from central and eastern North America including the type sp. of Coreopsis, Coreopsis lanceolata. Native California species formerly in Coreopsis form a separate clade, treated here as Leptosyne. Coreopsis wrightii (A. Gray) H.M. Parker ex E.B. Sm. not naturalized in California.
