A new genus, Xenophyllum, is de- scribed, which consists of 21 species extracted from Wernena s.l. (Compositae: Senecioneae). All members of this new genus are mat- or hummock-forming pe- rennials that grow at high elevations (3000-5200 m) in the Andes from Colombia to northern Argentina and northern Chile. Included is a brief description of the disposition of the species of Wernena s.l. and a preliminary key to those included in Xenophyllum. Wernena s.l. is a genus of 40 50 species that grows…

Taxonomic revision of the Andean genus Xenophyllum (Compositae, Senecioneae)

The first modern and comprehensive revision of the genus Xenophyllum recognizing twenty-two species and two subspecies is presented, and four varietal names and two sectional names are proposed as new synonyms.

Taxonomic Revision of the Neotropical Genus Werneria (Compositae, Senecioneae)

The first modern, comprehensive revision of this genus recognizing 27 species is presented here, and eight species are illustrated, two of them for the first time.

Misbrookea, a new monotypic genus removed from Werneria s.1. (Compositae: Senecioneae)

A new genus is described based on a species formerly found in Werneria s.1. It is named after a collector, Miss Winifred M. A. Brooke. The new genus, Misbrookea, is confined to dry, high-elevation

A new genus, Rockhausenia (Compositae: Senecioneae: Senecioninae)

All species that Funk recognised in Xenophyllum are thus wernerias in the nomenclatural sense, and the confusion surrounding the generic name Oresigonia is commented on.

Two new species of Werneria from Peru and re-circumscription of W. weberbaueriana (Compositae, Senecioneae)

Two new species of Werneria (Compositae, Senecioneae) are described from the highlands of central Peru on the basis of morphological evidence and the misinterpreted taxonomic entity W. weberbaueriana is properly circumscribed according to the protologue.

Two new species of the Andean genus Xenophyllum (Senecioneae, Compositae).

Two new species of Xenophyllum are described from the Andes, X. funkianum sp. nov. from Ecuador and X. lorochaqui sp. nov. from northwestern Argentina. Both species are compared with the

Cantua is the genus with the largest number of endemic species, and it requires a modern taxonomic evaluation.

Brassicaceae endémicas del Perú

34 endemic taxa in 12 genera are recognized, found mainly in the Very Humid and Dry Puna, and High-Andean regions, growing above 3000 m elevation, of the Brasicaceae.

Lauraceae endémicas del Perú

The Lauraceae, a characteristic family of Peru's eastern montane forests, is represented in Peru by 16 genera and 247 species, with Nectandra and Ocotea are the genera with the largest number of endemic species.
