Recent field expeditions to the eastern slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes and revisionary work on Columnea (Gesneriaceae) section Collandra have resulted in the discovery of a new plant species. The new species, Columnea bivalvis, is distinguished by the presence of two pendent clasping bracts that enclose a single axillary flower.

Molecules and morphology: Congruence of data inColumnea (Gesneriaceae)
TLDR
A combined analysis of independent analyses of molecular and morphological data from Pentadenia and Stygnanthe finds that the level of incongruence between the two data sets was low and the tree resulting from the combined data has aspects of both the morphological and molecular trees despite the larger number of molecular characters.
Phylogenetic relationships and generic boundaries in the Episcieae (Gesneriaceae) inferred from nuclear, chloroplast, and morphological data
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses utilizing two molecular and morphological datasets and one morphological dataset combined in a total evidence analysis show Drymonia is weakly supported and is shown here to be morphologically diverse and in need of further evaluation.
