Deidamia Noronha ex Thouars (Passifloraceae) is a small genus known from Madagascar and the Comoro Islands. The previous treatment by Henri Perrier de la Bâthie for the Flore de Madagascar et des Comores recognized five species: Deidamia alata Noronha ex Thouars, Deidamia bicolor H. Perrier, Deidamia bipinnata Tul., Deidamia commersoniana DC. and Deidamia setigera Tul. A complete study of all material available in G, K, MO and P has facilitated a critical review of the taxonomy of the genus. Only three species are here recognized: Deidamia alata, Deidamia commersoniana and Deidamia thompsoniana DC. Three names are proposed as new synonyms and five lectotypes are designated. An identification key is provided, as well as data concerning distribution, ecology and conservation status for each accepted species.
