Abstract

Morphological examination of isotypes of Canthium elmeri revealed the absence of supra-axillary spines, which deviates from the current circumscription of Canthium s. stricto. The presence of persistent, basally connate and long-acuminate paired bracts in C. elmeri fits perfectly with the delimitation of Pyrostria. We lectotypify the name Canthium elmeri Merr. and propose the new combination Pyrostria elmeri (Merr.) Arriola, Meve & Alejandro.
