SummaryA new generic status, based both on morphological and recent phylogenetic evidence for Polygala subgenus Ligustrina (Chodat) Paiva, is proposed, as well as 15 typifications and 14 new combinations for species previously included in the Polygala subgenus Ligustrina are suggested, i.e.: Caamembeca bangiana (Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. insignis (Klotzsch ex Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. grandifolia (A. St.-Hil. & Moq.) J. F. B. Pastore, C. gigantea (Chodat) J. F. B. Pastore, C. laureola (A… 

Preliminary synopsis of the genus Hebecarpa (Polygalaceae)

To make the most accurate names available for modern workers, 11 names are transferred which the authors think most likely reflect discreet evolutionary lineages (species) and bringing the total number of Hebecarpa species to 19.

A Molecular Phylogeny and Taxonomic Notes in Caamembeca (Polygalaceae)

A phylogenetic analysis of 11 species of Caamembeca based on nrITS, matK, thetrnL intron, and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer is presented, providing an improved understanding of the genus.

Interspecific hybridization in North American Polygala (Polygalaceae)

It is found that the morphologically intermediate individuals within intermixed populations of both species pairs did indeed share all of the variable nucleotide sites in nrITS among the parent species, and it was determined that in bothspecies pairs, the parentage was bidirectional.

Development, structure and function of bracteal nectaries in Caamembeca laureola (A.St.Hil & Moq.) JFB Pastore (Polygalaceae)

These glands are named as bracteal nectaries, the first such report for the entire Polygalaceae, and brings up new data and interpretations regarding the role that such structures play in the studied group and also attributes diagnostic value to the character.

A Synopsis, New Combinations, and Synonyms in Acanthocladus (Polygalaceae)

A synopsis of the American genus Acanthocladus Klotzsch ex Hassk.


It is shown that evolution of the caruncular elaiosome type currently associated with ant dispersal occurred 54.0–50.5 million year ago, long after an estimated increase in ant lineages in the late Cretaceous based on molecular studies, but broadly concomitant with increasing global temperatures culminating in the Late Paleocene–Early Eocene thermal maxima.

It is unable to find any specimens or information that would lead to believe that the typical form ever occurred in Michigan even in the southernmost counties, and the opinion held by most writers is that the northern form is found in the northern part of the lower peninsula.
