Distribution ofC. grandiflora, C. schliebenii, and species of theCoccinia rehmanniiclade. Bright blue (southern Africa) = C. rehmannii, pale blue = C. trilobata, blackish blue = C. microphylla, ice-blue = C. abyssinica, dark blue = C. megarrhiza. Bright yellow = C. schliebenii, pale yellow = C. grandiflora.

The Coccinia rehmannii clade, which started diversifying during
an arid period at the end of the Miocene 5.2 Ma (7.9 - 2.8 95% HPD)
ago (Figure 4a), comprises five species (Figure 7: blue dots) and
two biome switches (Figure 4b).

Each pair comprises morphologically similar species with partly
overlapping ranges (Figure 5 and 7).
in southeastern Sudan (Figure 7), which have similar amounts of
precipitation, probably reflects long-distance seed dispersal by
birds [36, 37], rather than remnant populations from a once
Coccinia species of the rehmannii clade and other dry-adapted
species occur on either side of the Miombo belt (with 3 - 6 months
of aridity), but are absent from the belt itself (Figure 7).
