A new combination is made in Bothriocline (Compositae: Vernonieae), based on Erlangea fruticosa, an apparently rare plant from Guinea and Sierra Leone

10 April 2019

Abstract

Work towards the Compositae records for a checklist of the flora of Guinea (Conakry) provided some contentious records. Although ‘Bothriocline fruticosa (C.D.Adams) Lisowski’ appeared in Lisowski’s posthumous Flora account of the Asteraceae (= Compositae), no such combination has ever been validly published. Based on Erlangea fruticosa, material of this taxon has been curated (following the most recent revision of the East African species) for the last thirty years under the A – Z species of Bothriocline. It is clear that this material belongs in Bothriocline; the formal transfer is now made.
