Title: New combinations and new names in some Brazilian Microlicieae (Melastomataceae), with notes on the delimitation of Lavoisiera, Microlicia, and Trembleya
Author: Almeda, F
Martins, AB
Abstract: Consideration of generic limits in the largely Brazilian tribe Microlicieae has resulted in an emended circumscription of the genus Lavoisiera to include those species with a capsule that dehisces longitudinally from the base to the apex, and an ovary that is always partly inferior with a persistent columella and laterally flattened lamelliform placental intrusions. An ongoing re-evaluation of Lavoisiera necessitates the transfer of seven species Microlicia and one species to Trembleya. Six new combinations are proposed (Microlicia cerifera, M. mucugensis, M. noblickii, M. ordinata, M. vernicosa, and Trembleya elegans), and two new names are provided (Microlicia giuliettiana and M. longipedicellata) for epithets already pre-empted in the genus to which they are being transferred. Generic limits in Microlicia and Trembleya are also discussed, together with distributional notes and diagnostic characters for the species here transferred to these genera.
