  • Kanchi N. Gandhi Harvard University Herbaria
  • B. Kailash Ramamurthy Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology & the Environment (ATREE)


The new combination Dypsis lucubensis (Becc.) Kailash & Gandhi is made here to accommodate Chrysalidocarpus lucubensis Becc. and C. madagascariensis Becc. at species rank in Dypsis, necessitated by the later homonymy of D. madagascariensis (Becc.) Beentje & J. Dransf. (non; Woodrow).
