Popowia arfakensis, a new name for P. parvifolia Scheff. (Annonaceae)

K. KARTHIGEYAN, J. JAYANTHI

Abstract


During the study of the family Annonaceae for the flora of Andaman and Nicobar Islands in India (Karthigeyan et al. 2010, 2011), we found that the name Popowia parvifolia Scheffer (1885: 16), a New Guinean endemic species (Moeljono 2009), is a later homonym (Art. 53.1 of the ICN, McNeill et al. 2012) of the Indian endemic species (Mitra 1993, Rao 1999) Popowia parvifolia Kurz (1875: 324). Accordingly, a new name P. arfakensis is formally proposed here to replace Popowia parvifolia Scheff.
