Approximation of phylogenetic inferences suggested by Yunker. A rough phylogeny by Yunker was provided in the most recent monograph of the entire Cuscuta genus on page116 of . In cases where one or more subsection was shown by Yunker to arise from another, the given node in the tree was converted to a polytomy between the presumed progenitor subsection and its 'offspring' subsections. Taxa included in this study are shown to the right of subsection classifications to which they belong.
