The genera Brachycarpaea, Cycloptychis, Schlechteria, Silicularia, an Thlaspeocarpa are united with Heliophila (Brassicaceae). Except for Brachycarpaea, the genera are treated as new synonyms of Heliophila. The characters previously used to distinguish these genera are critically evaluated. The retention of Brachycarpaea and Silicularia in Heliophila would not necessitate any no-menclatural novelties, but the transfer of species of the remaining three genera to Heliophila requires a new combination and four new names. The new combination H. namaquensis and the new names H. monosperma, H. maraisiana, H. hurkana, and H. suborbicularis are proposed.
