Additions to the southern African rust fungi: four new species and two new host genera from South Africa and Angola
TLDR
Four new species of rust fungi from southern Africa are described, hitherto only known on Berkheya, and reported for the first time on the plant genera Thereianthus (Iridaceae) and Cullumia (Asteraceae), both from South Africa.
Iterative taxonomy based on morphological and molecular evidence to estimate species boundaries: a case study in Cypella (Iridaceae: Iridoideae)
TLDR
Findings support the utility of combining genetic evidence and broad morphological sampling to validate and describe species using complementary approaches and present an updated taxonomic treatment of C. pusilla, including an expanded description of the species.
Taxonomic novelties for the genus Cypella (Iridaceae): new species, synonymies and nomenclatural types
TLDR
Two new species are described and illustrated from northeastern Argentina, and northern Uruguay, and three new synonyms are proposed: C. laeta, C. amplimaculata under C. exilis, and C. osteniana subsp.
Species discrimination in Sisyrinchium (Iridaceae): assessment of DNA barcodes in a taxonomically challenging genus
TLDR
The study illustrates the difficulties for DNA barcoding to identify species in evolutionary complex lineages by testing the DNA barcode paradigm among the genera of the tribe Sisyrinchieae (Iridoideae), with the best taxonomic resolution obtained with Bayesian inference.
Floral rewards in the tribe Sisyrinchieae (Iridaceae): oil as an alternative to pollen and nectar?
TLDR
All species showed large amounts of additional resources available for pollinators in the form of pollenkitt and polysaccharides present in the cytoplasm of the pollen grains, and were discussed in a phylogenetic context, with regard to pollinators and floral rewards reported for the tribe Sisyrinchieae.
Oil-producing flowers within the Iridoideae (Iridaceae): evolutionary trends in the flowers of the New World genera.
TLDR
Floral glandular structures and especially trichomal elaiophores evolved multiple times independently in the American tribes of Iridoideae and the distribution pattern of species displaying glandular trichomes across the phylogeny reveals lability in the pollination system and suggests that these structures may have played a significant role in the diversification of the Iridoidae on the American continent.
Pollinator shifts as triggers of speciation in painted petal irises (Lapeirousia: Iridaceae).
TLDR
The available evidence points to a predominant influence of pollinator shifts over substrate types on the speciation process within Lapeirousia, contrary to previous studies that favoured a more important role for edaphic factors in these processes.
A new natural hybrid of Iris (Iridaceae) from Chongqing, China
TLDR
A newly discovered natural hybrid, Iris × ampliflora Y.E. Chen (Iridaceae: subgenus Limniris section Lophiris) from Chongqing, China, is described and illustrated, which is morphologically similar to I. japonica Thunb.
Review of Medicinal Applications , Phytochemistry and Pharmacological Properties of Aristea ecklonii
TLDR
A. ecklonii is used as an ornamental plant, protective charm, and herbal medicine for internal sores, cough, fever, syphilis, shingles, and venereal diseases and should be subjected to detailed phytochemical, pharmacological, and toxicological evaluations aimed at correlating its medicinal uses with its phytochemistry and pharmacological properties.
Cypella (Iridaceae): What do we know about the diversity of the genus?
TLDR
Comments about geographic distribution, taxonomic affinities, and morphology of all taxa are presented, and a key to distinguish the species of Cypella was organized.
