Abstract. In the Greater Antilles, Miconia sect. Chaenopleura comprises 47 species of montane shrubs and small trees. The group is likely monophyletic and is characterized by flowers with an actinomorphic androecium of white stamens with erectly held, obovate anthers, which open by two longitudinal slits, exposing the contents of the four locules.

Within the Antilles, species of Miconia sect. Chaenopleura occur in the Cordillera Central-Massif du Nord of Hispaniola (17 species, 8 endemic), Massif de la Selle-Sierra de Baoruco of Hispaniola.

Miconia galeiformis (sect. Chaenopleura) is distinctive within Miconia due to the presence of setose stems, petioles and abaxial leaf surface, and a large, globose stigma.

taxonomic revision. species of section Chaenopleura (Judd, in prep.). The six Hispaniolan species of Miconia section Cremanium (D. Don) Naudin are united by androecial characters, and all but two are endemic to this island.

It is, therefore, convenient to present here a taxonomic revision of a phe netically similar (and likely closely related) group of four.

In this work, we give updated descriptions, nomenclatural information, geographic distributions, citation of all specimens examined, as well as habitat descriptions for each of the six species that occur on Cuba, five of which are endemic and one shared with Hispaniola.

The Sagraea clade (Melastomataceae, tribe Miconieae) is briefly characterized, typified, and formally treated as a section within Miconia. In addition, two new species of Miconia sect.

These plants, easily recognized by. Two new species of Miconia from Bolivia are described: Miconia galeiformis and Miconia species occur in Andean montane forests. Miconia galeiformis (sect. Chaenopleura) is distinctive within Miconia due to the presence of setose stems, petioles and abaxial leaf surface, and a large, globose a neei bears unisexual flowers, and can be distinguished from similar.

Recent collections in the Sierra de Bahoruco represent a previously undescribed species of Miconia sect. Calycodomatia from the Greater Antillean Sandpaper clade. We herein describe the new species as Miconia clasei, provide a phylogenetic analysis to determine close relatives, and compare it morphologically with its closest relatives and phenetically similar taxa.

We also expand on previous. The species here compared from sect. Chaenopleura have 4-merous flowers, but the flowers are 5-merous in the ones from sect.

Cremanium. Miconia rigens, from Colombia’s Cordillera Oriental, is distinct by its much wider 3-nerved leaves (up to 3 cm) and longer internodes.

Recent phylogenetic studies incorporating DNA sequence data have corroborated the suspected non-monophyly of many currently recognized genera of tribe Miconieae (Melastomataceae), which includes about species restricted to the Neotropics.

The genus Mecranium, comprising 24 species endemic to the Greater Antilles and their satellite islands, appears to be a monophyletic. Miconia was described by Ruiz and Pavon inwith three species. It was under Naudin () that the genus ac-quired its present circumscription through the inclusion of several genera.

Some of these were then used as the basis of named infrageneric taxa, such as Miconia sects. Jucunda, Cre-manium, Chaenopleura,andGlossocentrum. Triana. Miconia sect. Lima is an entirely Greater Antillean clade that consists of 19 known species of shrubs and small trees, which were previously recognized under the polyphyletic genera Leandra and Ossaea.

The highest species richness in the clade is represented on Cuba (10 species), followed by Hispaniola (8 species) and then Jamaica (1 species). Here we present a taxonomic revision of the clade.
