Caamembeca salicifolia, a new combination for a Brazilian species of Polygalaceae

JOSÉ FLORIANO B. PASTORE

Abstract


The effort to revise all South American names in Polygala L. has revealed the earliest epithet for the species known as Caamembeca laureola (A.St.-Hil. & Moq.) J.F.B.Pastore to be conspecific with Polygala salicifolia Poir. The name P. salicifolia was erroneously interpreted by De Candolle to belong to the genus Monnina Ruiz & Pav., thus it was transferred as Monnina longifolia DC. Finally, P. salicifolia seems to have been overlooked during the last century. The new combination Caamembeca salicifolia is provided.
