McNeill (1962, 1980b) in segregating Minuartia from Arenaria, while we take an additional step in recognizing Eremogone. While a broad concept of Arenaria is often used in North American works (e.g., B. E. Wofford 1981), splitting Arenaria is supported by morphological and molecular evidence (M. Nepokroeff et al. 2001). J. McNeill (1962) outlined an infrageneric classification of Arenaria consisting of ten subgenera. The nine species of Arenaria occurring in North America belong to two subgenera (Leiosperma McNeill and Arenaria) and two sections within subg. Arenaria (Rariflorae F. Williams and Arenaria). Based in part on recent molecular evidence (M. Nepokroeff et al. 2001), we are here treating two of McNeill's subgenera as belonging to the genus EremogoneArenaria kandavanensis, recently described from the type area of A. fursei, is syno-nymized with the latter species. It is a narrow endemic of the Chalus Gorge in the Kandovan Mountains, Alborz Range (Mazandaran Province, northern Iran). A new nomenclatural combination, Eremogone fursei (Lazkov) Lazkov & Sennikov, is proposed for this species name in agreement with its phylogenetic placement in E. sect. Sclerophyllae. An updated description and distribution map of the species is provided, with an identification key to the species of E. sect. Sclerophyllae occurring in Iran.

includes 1,008 scientific plant names of species rank for the genus Arenaria. Of these 272 are accepted species names. Arenaria kandavanensis is a Synonym of A. fursei and Belongs in Eremogone (Caryophyllaceae)," Annales Botanici Fennici 57(1-3), 185-190, (14 May 2020). https://doi.org/10.5735/085.057.01262.
