Synoptic taxonomy of Cortaderia Stapf (Danthonioideae, Poaceae)


Testoni, Daniel; Linder, Peter H (2017). Synoptic taxonomy of Cortaderia Stapf (Danthonioideae, Poaceae). PhytoKeys, 76:39-69.

Abstract

Cortaderia (Poaceae; Danthonioideae) is a medium-sized genus of C3 tussock grasses, widespread in the
temperate to tropic-alpine regions of South America. It is particularly important in the subalpine and alpine
zones of the Andes. We revised the classification of the genus, and recognize 17 species grouped into five
informal groups. We describe one new species, Cortaderia echinata H.P.Linder, from Peru. We provide a key
to the groups and the species, complete nomenclature for each species including new lectotypes, and notes
on the ecology, distribution and diagnostic morphological and anatomical characters.
