Quinchamalium chilense was shown via morphometric analyses by Lopez Laphitz et al. (2015. Systematic Botany 40:1045-1052) to be a single, polymorphic, widespread species with a continuum of morphological variation (either genotypic or environmental phenotypic plasticity). A taxonomic revision reduced to synonymy 28 names of species or infraspecific taxa (Lopez Laphitz et al. 2015. Bol. Soc. Argent. Bot. 50:235-246).
