Maytenus species bearing fruits with a coriaceous pericarp that open by two valves and having seeds that are completely covered by a white aril are currently placed in the genus Monteverdia. One hundred and twenty-three combinations have been proposed following these two diagnostic characters. However, according to Art. 41.5 of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi and plants, one of these combinations has not been validly published. The validation of the combination Monteverdia psammophila is provided here through the presentation of the complete citation of its basionym.
