A revision of the African genera Paropsiopsis and Smeathmannia (Passifloraceae - Paropsieae), including a new species of Paropsiopsis from Cameroon


De Vos, J M; Breteler, F J (2009). A revision of the African genera Paropsiopsis and Smeathmannia (Passifloraceae - Paropsieae), including a new species of Paropsiopsis from Cameroon. Edinburgh Journal of Botany, 66(1):27-49.

Abstract

The African genera Paropsiopsis Engl. and Smeathmannia R.Br. (Passifloraceae – Paropsieae) are revised. The two genera are well separated based on the presence or absence of a second, annuliform, corona, as well as the number of stamens and curvature of their filaments. An overview of important characters and a key to all genera of Paropsieae is provided. In Paropsiopsis all previously recognised species are united under P. decandra (Baill.) Sleumer. In addition one species, Paropsiopsis atrichogyna J.M.de Vos & Breteler, is newly described and illustrated. In Smeathmannia both previously recognised species are maintained, but infraspecific taxa are rejected. Descriptions of both genera and their species, keys to species, illustrations and distribution maps are provided.
