MEZZONATO-PIRES, Ana Carolina; MILWARD-DE-AZEVEDO, Michaele Alvim; MENDONCA, Cláudia Barbieri Ferreira  and  GONCALVES-ESTEVES, Vania. Taxonomic notes on species of Passiflora subgenus Astrophea (Passifloraceae s.s.). Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.1, pp.149-152. ISSN 0102-3306.

The subgenus Astrophea is one of the most critical and neglected subgenera of the genus Passiflora. Seven Brazilian species of P. subg. Astrophea were found to be in need of typification. Lectotypes are designated for the following names: Passiflora cauliflora, P. leptopoda, P. ceratocarpa, P. faroana, P. rhamnifolia, P. sclerophylla and P. tessmannii. An epitype was also designated for the name P. tessmannii. In addition, Passiflora alliacea was synonymized with Passiflora pentagona.

Keywords : Brazilian species; epitype; lectotype; nomenclature; taxonomy.
