The Anisophylleaceae comprise 29-34 species of shrubs and trees occurring in lowland forests and swamps in tropical Africa, Asia, and South America. These species are placed in four genera with disjunct geographic distributions; Anisophyllea has 25-30 species in South America, Africa, and Malesia; Combretocarpus has one species in Sumatra and Borneo; Poga one species in equatorial Africa; and Polygonanthus two in the Amazon Basin. Here we use a phylogeny based on six nuclear and plastid loci… CONTINUE READING
