Subtribe Galipeinae (tribe Galipeeae, subfamily Rutoideae) is the most diverse group of Neotropical Rutaceae, with 28 genera and approximately 130 species. One of its genera is Almeidea, whose species are morphologically similar to those of the genus Conchocarpus. Species of Almeidea occur in the Atlantic Rain Forest of Eastern Brazil, with one species (Almeidea rubra) also present in Bolivia. The objective of this study was to perform a phylogenetic analysis of Almeidea, using a broader… Expand
A Revision of Conchocarpus with Pantocolporate Pollen Grains: The Almeidea Group (Galipeinae, Rutaceae)
Abstract Conchocarpus is the largest genus of Galipeinae (tribe Galipeeae), which is the most diverse group of Neotropical Rutaceae, with ca. 50 species. Recent phylogenetic analyses support aExpand
A tree nymph of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest: Dryades (Galipeinae, Rutaceae), a new neotropical genus segregated from Conchocarpus.
Results showed Conchocarpus as polyphyletic with its species divided in two clades, one of which includes the type species C. macrophyllus and the other includes C. concinnus suggesting a close phylogenetic affinity. Expand
Rediscovering the genus Lubaria (Rutaceae: Galipeinae), a new species and first record for Colombia
A new species from the northern foothills of the central Andes of Colombia belonging to the previously monotypic genus Lubaria (Sapindales: Rutaceae) is here described and illustrated; comments aboutExpand
Phylogeny and circumscription of Dasyphyllum (Asteraceae: Barnadesioideae) based on molecular data with the recognition of a new genus, Archidasyphyllum
Ancestral states reconstruction shows that the ancestor of Dasyphyllum probably had acrodromous leaf venation, bifid anther apical appendages, involucres up to 18 mm in length, and capitula arranged in synflorescence. Expand
Biogeographic patterns of Galipeinae (Galipeeae, Rutaceae) in Brazil: Species richness and endemism at different latitudes of the Atlantic Forest “hotspot”
Abstract The subtribe Galipeinae (Rutaceae) is a flowering plant group endemic to the Neotropical region, with its center of diversity in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Here, we aim to describe andExpand
Tackling pollination of tubular flowers in Rutaceae and a case study of Conchocarpus rubrus (Galipeinae, Rutaceae)
Floral features and pollination data indicate that the convergent evolution of floral tubes in Rutaceae resulted from phenotypic specialization toward a subset of nectar-foraging pollinators with long mouth parts. Expand
A new species of Raputia (Rutaceae) from the Selva Central of Peru
A new species endemic to the Huanuco region, in the Selva Central of Peru, is described and illustrated here and differs from other species of Raputia by the combination of 5–7-foliolate leaves and longer petioles. Expand
A new tiny-leaved species of Raveniopsis (Rutaceae) from the Pakaraima Mountains of Guyana
Abstract Raveniopsis microphyllus K.Wurdack, sp. nov., a new species known only from a single peak in the Pakaraima Mtns. of Guyana, is described and illustrated. This white-flowered shrub adds toExpand
Conchocarpus jirajaranus (Rutaceae), a new endemic species of the Coastal Cordillera of Venezuela
Conchocarpus jirajaranus from the central portion of the Coastal Cordillera of Venezuela (Carabobo and Yaracuy states) is newly described and illustrated. This small tree is found from 700–1150 m. ItExpand


Fusion within and between whorls of floral organs in Galipeinae (Rutaceae): structural features and evolutionary implications.
The degree and diversity of fusions of floral organs in Galipeinae is unique within the order Sapindales. Expand
Chilean Pitavia more closely related to Oceania and Old World Rutaceae than to Neotropical groups: evidence from two cpDNA non-coding regions, with a new subfamilial classification of the family
Results showed Pitavia as sister to Flindersia and Lunasia, both genera with species scattered through Australia, Philippines, Moluccas, New Guinea and the Malayan region, and phylogenetically far from other Neotropical Rutaceae, as well as a new circumscription of the subfamilies of Rutaceae is presented and discussed. Expand
A new species of Almeidea (Galipeinae, Galipeeae, Rutaceae) from Eastern Brazil
A new species of Almeidea (Rutaceae) belonging to the neotropical tribe Galipeeae (subtribe Galipeinae) is described and illustrated and brief discussions of the relationships of the new taxon to other species of albiflora, as well as comments on its conservation status are provided. Expand
Phylogeny of Rutaceae based on twononcoding regions from cpDNA.
Primarily known only by the edible fruits of Citrus, Rutaceae comprise a large (c. 160 genera and 1900 species), morphologically diverse, cosmopolitan family. Of its extraordinary array of secondaryExpand
A revision of Erythrochiton sensu lato (Cuspariinae, Rutaceae)
In the rutaceous subtribe Cuspariinae, species with relatively large, valvate, colored calyces have been assigned to Erythrochiton, but differences in arrangement of leaves, type of inflorescence, union of petals, of filaments, and of carpels argue for the recognition of three genera. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of Rutaceae: a cladistic analysis of the subfamilies using evidence from RBC and ATP sequence variation.
Correlation of the molecular phylogenies with biochemical data indicates that chemotaxonomic information is more reliable than fruit type as an indicator of familial and subfamilial circumscriptions. Expand
Pollen morphology of the subtribe Cuspariinae (Rutaceae)
The pollen of Hortia, characterized by a psilate exine with rare perforations, a very thick foot-layer, and reduced columellae, is unlike that of any member of the Cuspariinae and offers no support for the transfer of this genus from the Toddalioideae. Expand
New Subfamily Classification for the Rutaceae
The results are sufficiently robust to justify reclassification of the Rutaceae, with four subfamilies recognized in contrast to the traditional seven, and major rearrangements include major rearranged taxa within the subfamily Aurantioideae Horan. Expand
Synopses of Angostura Roem. & Schult. and Conchocarpus J. C. Mikan (Rutaceae)
The species excluded from Angostura are recognized as species of Conchocarpus and the following 21 new taxa are described: C. grandis from Amazonian Brazil, all are native to the coastal forests of eastern Brazil. Expand
Synonymy of Hortia arborea with H. brasiliana (Rutaceae) and a new species from Brazil
The name Hortia oreadica is here proposed for the shrubby species of central Brazil, a previously undescribed species. Expand
