Lycianthes is a genus of plants from the nightshade family (Solanaceae), found in both the Old World and the New World, but predominantly in the latter. It contains roughly 150 species, mostly from tropical America, with 35-40 species in Asia and the Pacific.

Characteristics[edit]

Lycianthes is apparently closely related to the chili and bell peppers (Capsicum). However, it was long confused with the nightshades (Solanum), and several little-known "Solanum" species presumably belong here.[1]

Related species[edit]

Other "Solanum" taxa of unknown identity but presumably belonging into Lycianthes include S. ciliatum Blume ex Miq., S. corniculatum Hiern, S. retrofractum var. acuminatum, S. violaceum Blume, S. violifolium f. typicum, S. virgatum notst β albiflorum, S. uniflorum Lag. and S. uniflorum var. berterianum.[1]
