Figures and Tables from this paper

Two new species and two new combinations in Mesoamerican Ericaceae
TLDR
Satyria ventricosa andVaccinium monteverdense from Panama and Costa Rica, respectively, are described and illustrated and relationships of the new species are discussed.
Four new species of Cavendishia (Ericaceae: Vaccinieae) from Costa Rica
TLDR
Cavendishia osaënsis and C. linearifolia Luteyn & J. F. Morales are newly described based on recent collections from Costa Rica and relationships within Cavendishia are discussed.
Redefinition of the neotropical genus Anthopterus (Ericaceae: Vaccinieae), including one new species
TLDR
Anthopterus is redefined to include several species formerly placed in Themistoclesia, and two subgenera are established within Anthopterus.
FLORA COSTARICENSIS: Family #172 Ericaceae
TLDR
The conservation status of each species is given based on 35 years of collecting experience and the numbers of herbarium specimens extant, and Habitats, habits, field characters, keys, illustrations, and discussions of species relationships are given as aids to identification.
“Murrí” (Antioquia Department, Colombia): hotspot for neotropical blueberries (Ericaceae: Vaccinieae)
TLDR
A taxonomic review of the Vaccinieae (Ericaceae) from the region known as Murrí (Antioquia Department, Colombia) is presented and nectar content is reported for the first time for 26 species.
Systematics and Biogeography of Orthaea Kloztsch (Ericaceae: Vaccinieae)
TLDR
Divergence times estimations indicate that the Andean clade of Vaccinieae migrated to South America during the Late Oligocene or Early Miocene, and most of the subsequent diversification took place during the Tertiary.

Additions to the Ericaceae of Panama
TLDR
It is safe to predict that many additional species await discovery in the extensive areas of Panama that are botanically either unexplored or little explored, and it is to be hoped that funds for continued exploration will be forthcoming.
