Abstract in another language

The revision of Metastelma (Apocynaceae´┐ŻAsclepiadoideae)in southwestern North America and Central America (excluding the Caribbean) is based onfield observations and study of herbarium specimens. Sixteen species are recognized (twoof these split into two subspecific units, two into three subspecific units). Two newtaxa, M. barbigerum var. veracruzense and M. schlechtendalii var. arenicola,are described. Two former species are reduced to subspecific rank (M.arizonicum subsp. chiapense and M.californicum subsp. lanceolatum) and two tovarietal rank (M. barbigerum var. liesneriana and M. schlechtendalii var.trichophyllum). One taxon (M. turneri) is raised from varietal to speciesrank. Four new synonyms are recognized: Ditassa mexicana assynonym to M. californicum subsp. lanceolatum,M.infimicola as synonym to M. eliasianum, M. macropodum assynonym to M. palmeri, and M. multiflorum assynonym to M. schaffneri. The morphology of the North andCentral American species of Metastelma, as well as habitats,distribution, and phenology, are described. In addition to the taxonomic descriptions,illustrations and distribution maps are presented for each species.
