In all 61 species are documented: Carapichea (1 sp.), Margaritopsis (4 spp.), Notopleura (36 spp.), Ronabea (2 spp.), and Rudgea (18 spp.). Twelve species are endemic. Four species are described as new: Rudgea clerodendroides Zappi, R. crassipetiolata Zappi, R. pendula Standl. ex Zappi and R. spinigemma Zappi.
