Abstract

A new generic status, based both on morphological and recent phylogenetic evidence for Polygala subgenus Ligustrina (Chodat) Paiva, is proposed, as well as 15 typifications and 14 new combinations for species previously included in the Polygala subgenus Ligustrina are suggested, i.e.: Caamembeca bangiana (Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. insignis (Klotzsch ex Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. grandifolia (A. St.-Hil. & Moq.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. gigantea (Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. laureola (A. St.-Hil. & Moq.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. martinellii (Marques & E. F. Guim.) J. F. B. Pastore var. martinellii, C. martinellii var. carnosa (Marques & E. F. Guim.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. oleifolia (A. St.-Hil. & Moq.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. oxyphylla (DC.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. spectabilis (DC.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. spectabilis (DC.) J. F. B. Pastore var. amazonensis (Marques & E. F. Guim.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. spectabilis (DC.) J. F. B. Pastore var. autranii (Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. ulei (Taub.) J. F. B. Pastore and C. warmingiana (A. W. Benn.) J. F. B. Pastore. Three names are synonymised for the first time and some of the typifications are accompanied by taxonomic notes.
