  1. The above table gives a history of the nomenclature of species within Erianthus sect Ripidium (Tripidium) starting with the Basionym (original name), followed by the treatment of Grassl [9], the re-classification of Valdés et al. [12], the current definition in Tropicos [47] and the current definition in GrassBase [7]. The notes column denotes species that have been re-classified as being synonymous with previously defined species. All species in the table are from the Old World
