Austinia, a new genus of Convolvulaceae from Brazil

Maria Teresa Buril, Ana Rita Simões, Mark Carine, Marccus Alves


Austinia, a new genus of Convolvulaceae is described and its relationship with other genera is discussed. Two species previously placed in Jacquemontia are referable to the genus. However, a revision of species delimitation demonstrates that the two are conspecific. Austinia therefore comprises a single species, endemic to Brazil.
