- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 3,724 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Subfamily Antirrhinoideae.
Antirrhinum is a genus of plants commonly known as snapdragons or dragon flower from the flowers' fancied resemblance to the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth when laterally squeezed (thus the 'snap'). The antirrhinums used to be treated as the family Scrophulariaceae, but studies of DNA sequences have led to the inclusion of Antirrhinum in a vastly enlarged family Plantaginaceae. The word "Antirrhinum" is derived from a?t??????? "antirrhinon" which in turn was derived from Greek anti (a?t?), "like," and rhis (???, ????), "nose", inus (-????), "of" or "pertaining to". The name literally means "like a nose" in Ancient Greek and probably refers to the nose-like capsule in its mature state. [more]
Kickxia is a genus of plants in the . It includes several species of plants known commonly as cancerworts or fluellins. They are mostly native to Europe, but two species, K. elatine and K. spuria are well-known elsewhere as invasive weeds. Genus Kickxia was named after the Belgian botany professor J. J. Kickx. [more]
Linaria is a genus of about 100 species of herbaceous annuals and perennials that was traditionally placed in the foxglove family Scrophulariaceae. Due to new genetic research, it has now been placed in the vastly expanded family Plantaginaceae. The genus is native to temperate regions of Europe, northern Africa and Asia, with the highest species diversity in the Mediterranean region. [more]
Mohavea is a plant consisting of two species native to the deserts of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. [more]
Penstemon (), Beard-tongue, is a large genus of North American and East Asian plants traditionally placed in the Scrophulariaceae family. Due to new genetic research, it has now been placed in the vastly expanded family Plantaginaceae. In the earlier Cronquist system, it was placed in Scrophulariaceae. [more]
The Russelia is among the most common of , and is easily recognized by its brilliant red flowers that are shaped like tall thin vases. It is also known as the Firecracker plant or Coralblow. Russelia grows in many parts of the world, and is mildly drought resistant. [more]
At least 8 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Schweinfurthia.
