Preliminary Molecular Phylogenetic Studies in Pachyanthus (Miconieae, Melastomataceae)

Abstract

Pachyanthus (Melastomataceae: Miconieae) is traditionally circumscribed as a group of 20 species of Caribbean shrubs, mostly local Cuban endemics. However, the exact number of species is unknown because generic delimitations are still unclear for most genera of Miconieae. To test the monophyly of Pachyanthus, we produced a molecular phylogeny using nrITS… (More)
