More work is needed to determine whether the species listed below form a clade and merit reinstatement as a distinct genus, or alternatively if the name Ticanto should be synonymised under another genus in the Caesalpinia group. The list of species presented below includes names that most probably belong in Ticanto , but revisionary and phylogenetic work are needed to accurately delimit species, and determine types and synonyms.
