Recent molecular phylogenetic studies indicated that no less than ten genera of Gesneriaceae are nested in Oreocharis Benth., and the circumscription of the genus was extended accordingly. The enlarged genus has a distribution predominantly in China. On the basis of recent molecular phylogenetic studies, two further species are transferred to Oreocharis here : Briggsia speciosa (Hemsl.) Craib and Ancylostemon dimorphosepalus W. H. Chen & Y. M. Shui and the necessary new combinations are provided.
