PEREIRA, Andreza Stephanie de Souza; CASTELLO, Ana Carolina Devides; SIMOES, André Olmos  and  KOCH, Ingrid. Reestablishment, new records, and a key for the species of Aspidosperma (Apocynaceae) from the Brazilian Amazon. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.1, pp.1-20.  Epub Sep 21, 2018. ISSN 0102-3306.

As a result of systematic study of the Neotropical genus Aspidosperma (Apocynaceae), we reestablish the species A. centrale and A. duckei, and report A. steinbachii and A. tambopatense as new records for Brazil. We provide taxonomic descriptions of these species along with plates, distribution maps, and information on their conservation status, habitat and phenology. We also provide an identification key for all the species of Aspidosperma from the Brazilian Amazon.

Keywords : Aspidospermeae; distribution; Neotropics; South America; taxonomy.
