Abstract

GARZON VENEGAS, JAVIER  and  GONZALEZ, FAVIO. FIVE NEW SPECIES AND THREE NEW RECORDS OF BURMEISTERA (CAMPANULACEAE-LOBELIOIDEAE) FROM COLOMBIA. Caldasia [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.2, pp.309-324. ISSN 0366-5232.

Five new species of Colombian Burmeistera are described and illustrated and their relationships with other species from Colombia, Central America, Venezuela, and Ecuador are discussed. Three of the newly described species are from the Western Cordillera, one from the Central Cordillera and one is restricted to the northern part of the Eastern Cordillera. Along with the descriptions of these new species, we record the presence of B. formosa, B. smaragdi, and B. venezuelensis for the first time in Colombia. Some guidelines to collect Burmeistera specimens are also included to preserve distinctive traits that are often lost once they have been pressed and dried.

Keywords : Andean Flora; Colombian Lobelioideae; Andean Endemics; Flora of Colombia.
