Lenophyllum is a genus of flowering plants in the orpine family, Crassulaceae. The roughly seven species it contains are distributed in Texas in the United States and northeastern Mexico.[2] Some authorities place it in the genus Sedum.[1] Plants in this genus are distinguished from Sedum species by the presence of terminal inflorescences, erect petals, and opposite leaves.[3] The name is derived from the Ancient Greek words ληνός (lenos), meaning "trough", and φυλλον (phyllos), meaning "leaf."[2]
