  author={George L. Robinson and Richard P. Wunderlin},
A revision of the neotropical genus Fevillea with keys, descriptions, and distribution is provided. Tw o subgenera are recognized: subgenus Fevillea with six species and subgenus Anisosperma with one species. Fevillea bahiensis G. Robinson & Wunderlin from Brazil is described as new and subgenus Anisosperma (Silva Manso) G. Robinson & Wunderlin is proposed.

Pollen morphology of Brazilian Fevillea (Cucurbitaceae)
Pollen morphology of the five Brazilian species of the genus Fevillea was studied using light and scanning electron microscopy, finding that pollen in these species is generally stenopalynous, which is in agreement with observations in previous studies of other species.
The Relationship Between Anisosperma and Fevillea (Cucurbitaceae), and a New Species of Fevillea from Bolivia
Analysis of chloroplast DNA sequences representing most genera of Cucurbitaceae, including Fevillea with four of its seven species, supports placing the new species in F Evillea despite its small, flattened, and highly sculptured seeds, which are unusual in the genus.
A Revision of the Didelphid Marsupial Genus MarmosaPart 2. Species of the Rapposa Group (Subgenus Micoureus)
Phylogenetic analyses of a multigene dataset suggest that putative species of Micoureus belong to several well-supported clades, one of which (the “Rapposa Group”) is revised in this report.

Further notes on Cucurbitaceae: IV* Some New-World taxa
The New-World Cucurbitaceae badly need a thorough taxonomic revision along 'Flora Neotropica' lines, and the present paper is hardly more than a stop-gap pending the undertaking of such an account, but may be found of value to workers on the crop plants in the family as indicating the taxa most closely allied to the cultivated species.
