VILLARREAL-QUINTANILLA, José A.; ESTRADA-CASTILLON, A. Eduardo  and  JASSO DE RODRIGUEZ, Diana. The genus Gentiana (Gentianaceae) in Mexico. Polibotánica [online]. 2009, n.27, pp. 1-16. ISSN 1405-2768.

The genus Gentiana (Gentianaceae), distributed in temperate and cold regions of the Northern Hemisphere, is represented in Mexico by 13 species plus one subspecies. Most of these are endemic, with only two also registered from Guatemala. A synopsis of the genus in Mexico is presented, including a key for the identification of the species, descriptions, and ecological and distributional information.
