Abstract

The morphology and anatomy of Bomarea ovallei, originally described in the genus Leontochir, are examined and compared to other species of Bomarea. Bomarea ovallei is restricted to a small area in northern Chile. It differs from other congeneric species in only two morphological characters. Overall, the evidence presented here supports the view of Ravenna (2000), who included Leontochir in Bomarea.
