GIRALDO-CANAS, DIEGO. Revision of the genus Axonopus (Poaceae: Paniceae): First record of the genus for Europe and taxonomic novelties. Caldasia [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.2, pp.301-314. ISSN 0366-5232.

Axonopus P. Beauv. is an American genus with ca. 72 species, mainly distributed in northern South America, with some species apparently introduced in the Old World. The genus Axonopus is recorded for the first time in Europe [Axonopus fissifolius (Raddi) Kuhlm.]. Additionally, five new synonyms are proposed for Axonopus compressus (Sw.) P. Beauv. and Axonopus scoparius (Flüggé) Kuhlm. Descriptions are provided for the three species treated herein, including synonyms, illustrations, ecological and geographic distribution, and comments on particular features.

Keywords : Axonopus; Flora of Europe; Flora of America; Paniceae; Poaceae; Taxonomy of grasses.
