Abstract

In a recent article, a flower from Burmese amber was described as Diaphoranthus burmensis. It was later discovered that the genus Diaphorathus Meyen had been used previously for an asterid, Diaphoranthus fuscus (Meyen 1834). The new name for Diaphoranthus burmensis is changed below to Exalloanthum burmense.
