provided by wikipedia EN

Iogeton is a monotypic genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family.[2][3]

It only contains one known species, Iogeton nowickeanus, known only from San Blas Province in Panamá.[1]

The genus name of Iogeton is in reference to the Greek mythology character of Io (a goddess associated with rivers) and -geton (the Greek word meaning neighbour) and which is because the plant is found near streams.[4]
