Philcoxia tuberosa (Plantaginaceae), a new species from Bahia, Brazil

  title={Philcoxia tuberosa (Plantaginaceae), a new species from Bahia, Brazil},
  author={Maria Luiza Silveira Carvalho and Luciano Paganucci de Queiroz},
Philcoxia tuberosa is proposed as a new species of Plantaginaceae from Bahia (Northeastern Brazil). It can be differentiated from the remaining three species of the genus by the presence of tubers in the branches, smaller flowers, pedicel and sepals sparsely glandular, bicolor corolla with purple tube and white limb, and longer sepals and filaments. This new species has a narrow geographical range in Morro do Chapeu municipality, on the Northern slopes of the Chapada Diamantina mountain range… Expand

Phylogenetic Relationships and Morphological Evolution in the Carnivorous Genus Philcoxia (Plantaginaceae, Gratioleae)
The phylogenetic placement of Philcoxia within tribe Gratioleae has been uncertain since its discovery due to its unique morphology and limited data from phylogenetic studies, and the need to reassess the concepts and circumscriptions of some currently accepted genera of the Gratioelae such as Bacopa, Conobea, and Stemodia, and for the tribe Angelonieae.

Microsatellite markers for studies with the carnivorous plant Philcoxia minensis (Plantaginaceae)1
The 12 polymorphic microsatellite markers developed for the critically endangered carnivorous species Philcoxia minensis are suitable for studies in genetic diversity and structure, mating system, and gene flow in P. minensis and also may be useful for similar issues regarding the related species P. bahiensis.
