Note: this study included a sample of Vicia michauxii that was resolved together with other members of section Peregrinae; it also found a lack of support for a close affinity of that section with the "heterogeneous" section Hypechusa

Note: this study included samples of Vicia michauxii and of "V. michauxii var. stenophylla"; it found that based on karyotype alone these taxa were distant; however, based on DNA data this study recovered a monophyletic section Peregrinae with closer affinities to section Narbonensis than to Faba
