Towards a taxonomic treatment of the Ericaceae for Bolivia and Peru: New species of Thibaudia, synonyms, lectotypes, and observations

  • James L. Luteyn The New York Botanical Garden

Abstract

Thibaudia cardenasii Luteyn, T. nervosa Luteyn, T. beckii Luteyn, T. cuscoensis Luteyn, and T. lanata Luteyn are described and illustrated. New synonyms and lectotypes are proposed for numerous taxa of Ericaceae, all towards a taxonomic treatment of Ericaceae for Bolivia and adjacent southern Peru.
