Abstract

Synonymy, typification, distribution, and key to the 23 species of Braya are given, along with an updated generic description. The new species B. sichuanica is described and illustrated. The new combinations B.fengii, B. parvia, B. piasezkii, B. qingshuiheense, and B. stigmatosa are proposed. A list of taxa excluded from Braya is given, along with their current generic and tribal placements. The following taxa are lectotypified: Beketowia tianschanica, Braya aenea var. multicaulis, B. aenea var. simplicior, B. pectinata, B. purpurascens var. longisiliquosa, B. rosea var. angustifolia, B. tibetica var. breviscapa, B. versicolor, Erysimum pamiricum, E. stigmatosum, Pilosella richardsonii, Sisymbrium nanum var. leiocarpum, and Torularia humilis prol. venusta. Previous designations are narrowed for Arabis sinuata, Braya aenea, B. rosea, B. thomsonii, and B. tibetica.
