  author={Fabiana Luiza Ranzato Filardi and Haroldo C. Lima},
Abstract Machaerium is a predominantly Neotropical genus with around 130 species of trees, shrubs, and lianas occurring from southern Mexico to northern Argentina. In Brazil there are about 80 species, with the highest diversity occurring in the Atlantic and Amazonian forests. Our taxonomic revision of Machaerium in the Atlantic Forest included field studies in the northeast, southeast, and south of Brazil as well as the analysis of collections that belong to 40 herbaria, which has allowed…

Tachigali spathulipetala, a New Threatened Caesalpinioid Tree Species (Leguminosae) from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
A new myrmecophytic caesalpinioid legume species, Tachigali spathulipetala, from the highly endangered Brazilian Atlantic Forest domain is described and illustrated and is morphologically similar to T. pilgeriana and T. beaurepairei.
Metabolites of Machaerium isadelphum as chemophenetic markers of Machaerium genus
In this study, sixteen compounds were characterized from the acetone extract of Machaerium isadelphum leaves and branches: two isoflavones, six pterocarpans, one flavanone, three sterols and four triterpenes.
Isolation of hopane triterpenes and other constituents from Machaerium brasiliense vogel (Fabaceae)
Phytochemical study of Machaerium brasiliense leaves extract afforded three hopane triterpenes 3,4-seco-21β-H-hop-22 (29-en-3-oic acid), hopenone B, hopene B, and the structures of these compounds were established based on spectroscopic data in comparison to those described in literature.

The genus Machaerium (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Dalbergieae) in Ecuador
The Amphiatlantic genusMachaerium consists of shrubs, trees, and lianas occurring from sea level to 500–900 m (rarely 1700 m). The genus is known from Mexico southward to Brazil and Argentina, with
Two New Species of Machaerium (Leguminosae) from Bahia and Southeastern Brazil
The first new Brazilian species, M. jobimianum C. Lima, is a tree species endemic to the Reserva Ecológica Macaé de Cima, an area of Atlantic forest in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, and has a wider distribution than the first, occurring in Atlantic and mesophitic forests or as a pioneer in secondary vegetation.
Steinbachiella (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Dalbergieae), endemic to Bolivia, is reinstated as an accepted genus
The monospecific genus Steinbachiella Harms is reinstated as a distinct genus in Leguminosae, tribe Dalbergieae, based on recent collections from Bolivia, with a unique suite of morphological characters.
As espécies de Machaerium Pers. (Leguminosae - Papilionoideae - Dalbergieae) ocorrentes no estado de São Paulo

The Genus Machaerium (Leguminosae) is More Closely Related to Aeschynomene Sect. Ochopodium than to Dalbergia: Inferences from Combined Sequence Data
This study identifies the disparate lineages of the genus Aeschynomene and reveals that species with basifixed stipules (i.e., sect. Ochopodium) perhaps should be ranked as a distinct genus and validate the infrageneric classification of Machaerium.

Species Concepts and Species Delimitation
A unified species concept can be achieved by treating existence as a separately evolving metapopulation lineage as the only necessary property of species and the former secondary species criteria as different lines of evidence relevant to assessing lineage separation.
