Axyris is a small genus of six species with a disjunct geographic range. Five species are present in Siberia, Central Asia, the Himalayas, and Tibet, whereas Axyris caucasica has been registered in the Central Caucasus only. Axyris species diversity is the highest in the Altai Mountains (four spp.), followed by the Tian Shan and Pamir Mountains (th...

Citation: Sukhorukov AP, Fedorova AV, Kushunina M, Mavrodiev EV (2022) Akhania, a new genus for Salsola daghestanica, Caroxylon canescens and C. carpathum (Salsoloideae, Chenopodiaceae, Amaranthaceae). PhytoKeys 211: 45-61. https://doi. Abstract Genus Salsola s.l. was recently split into several genera of different phylogenetic placements within Sa...

Kalidium juniperinum Sukhor. et Lomon. is described as a species new to science. It is similar to K. folia-tum in having a short leaf blade but differs by the presence of numerous slender, prostrate, or ascending stems forming mats vs. the stout main upright stem; acuminate bracts slightly exceeding the flower cyme vs. obtuse bracts equal to the fl...

Systematics of the genus Oxybasis Kar. & Kir. based on the molecular phylogeny (nrITS marker) is provided. Oxybasis macrosperma is added to the analysis for the first time, and it belongs to the type section. In total, we accept three sections: Oxybasis sect. Oxybasis, O. sect. Glauca. sect. Urbica, and this subdivision is supported by the carpolog...

For a long time, the systematics of Atriplex was based solely on morphological characters and leaf anatomy. The latest worldwide phylogenetic study of Atriplex significantly improved our knowledge about the relationships within the genus, but a new classification has not been put forward thus far. Here we re-evaluate the taxonomy of C 4 -species of...

In this study, we critically revised and updated the checklist of native vascular plants of Mongolia. The checklist comprises 3,041 native vascular plant taxa (2,835 species and 206 infraspecific species) from 653 genera and 111 families, including 7 lycophytes, 41 ferns, 21 gymnosperms, and 2,972 angiosperms. In the angiosperms, we identified the...
Article
Atriplex is the most species-rich genus of Amaranthaceae and one of the largest C4 clades in eudicots. Distributed predominantly in the arid subtropical and temperate regions worldwide, many Atriplex species dominate the plant communities of harsh and inhospitable inland and coastal habitats. Current threats of aridification and salinisation increa...

The last treatment of Chenopodiaceae in Madagascar was published in 1954 and since then, the generic circumscription of Chenopodiaceae including Salicornioideae has changed drastically. The Madagascan Salicornioideae (samphires) are still insufficiently studied. Salicornia pachystachya described from Madagascar had a turbulent nomenclatural and mor...
Article
A distinctive new species, Sesuvium curassavicum Sukhor. (Aizoaceae: Sesuvioideae), restricted to the Caribbean Basin (Kingdom of the Netherlands: Curaçao and Bonaire Islands, North Colombia: La Guajira Department , and North Venezuela: Falcón State), is described and illustrated. It differs from all other perennial species growing in the West Indi...

New data on the distribution of 12 vascular plant species are given. Nine species are reported as new records for Amur Region (Arctium minus (Hill) Bernh., Carduus acanthoides L., Sinapis arvensis L., Callitriche hermaphroditica L., Atriplex patens (Litv.) Iljin, Chenopodium virgatum Thunb., Thladiantha dubia Bunge, Cyperus difformis L., Leonurus c...

Three new alien species of Chenopodiaceae s. str. (Amaranthaceae s. l.) are reported for the flora of Russia, the North American Chenopodiastrum simplex and Australian Dysphania carinata and D. pumilio. The identification of the specimens of Chenopodiastrum simplex from Moschny Island in the Leningrad Region (European Russia) was confirmed using bo...

A species of Central American origin, Galinsoga quadriradiata Ruiz & Pav., new for Zambia, was found in Lusaka Province during a fieldtrip in March 2021. It seems to be naturalized in this region and was found in abundance together with G. parviflora Cav.

After a rather turbulent taxonomic history, Dysphanieae (Chenopodioideae, Amaranthaceae) were established to contain five genera, four of which are monospecific (Cycloloma, Neomonolepis, Suckleya, Teloxys) and geographically restricted, and the fifth genus, Dysphania, having a nearly worldwide distribution and comprising ca. 50 species. This study...

Glinus is a small genus of Molluginaceae with 8–10 species mostly distributed in the tropics of the World. Its composition and evolutionary relationships were poorly studied. A new molecular phylogeny constructed here using nuclear (ITS) and chloroplast (rbcL, trnK-matK) markers confirmed the monophyly of the genus. Based on ITS analysis, the follo...

Amaranthus palmeri is native to Mexico and the southeastern parts of the USA, and is reported as alien in subtropical regions of the Old World. Previous records from Africa were from the northern parts of the continent. This species was first found in South Africa in March 2018 with further records in different regions of the country as well as in...
Article
Kochia monticola was previously considered as a synonym for the widely distributed Irano-Turanian Panderia pilosa. After the merger of Kochia and Panderia with Bassia based on molecular phylogeny, K. monticola remained a synonym of Bassia pilosa. We claim that Bassia monticola, a name proposed by Kuntze (1891) for K. monticola, should be separated...
Article
Nyctaginaceae are one of the most diverse families in core Caryophyllales. The most diagnostic character of the family is a persistent anthocarp derived from a calyx-like perianth. Anthocarp morphology is highly variable across the family, but its evolution is poorly studied. We investigate anthocarp evolution in Nyctaginaceae through extensive ana...
Article
The distribution of Limeum, the single genus in Limeaceae, has been considered limited to continental Africa, SW Asia and India. Limeum madagascariense Sukhor., a new species described here, is the first member of the genus reported from Madagascar. It was recorded from the area surrounding Mahajanga in the northwest of the island. The species can...

A new endemic species, Eranthis tanhoensis sp. nov., is described from the Republic of Buryatia and Irkutsk Province, Russia. It belongs to Eranthis section Shibateranthis and is morphologically similar to E. sibirica and E. stellata. An integrative taxonomic approach, based on cytogenetical, molecular and biochemical analyses, along with morpholog...

Scorzonera comprises 180–190 species and belongs to the subtribe Scorzonerinae. Its circumscription has long been the subject of debate and available molecular phylogenetic analyses affirmed the polyphyly of Scorzonera in its wide sense. We provide a re-evaluation of Scorzonera and other related genera, based on carpological (including anatomical)...
Article
Some taxonomically critical and poorly known taxa from the order Caryophyllales are discussed. Both molecular and morphological data suggest that the chorologically distant populations of Tribulocarpus dimorphanthus in Namibia and East Africa are not uniform. Consequently, a new combination for Tetragonia somalensis, previously described from East...

Aim Using the extremophile genus Anabasis, which includes c. 28 succulent, xerophytic C4 species, and is widely distributed in arid regions of Northern Africa, Arabia, and Asia, we investigate biogeographical relationships between the Irano‐Turanian floristic region (ITfr) and its neighboring regions. We test whether the spread of arid and semi‐ari...

The composition of many Chenopodiaceae genera in different parts of Himalaya and Tibet has been insufficiently known or contradictory. A revision of the family in Himalaya including Bhutan, Nepal, parts of India (Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Sikkim, and Uttarakhand) and Tibet (Xizang, China) is presented for the first time. Altogether, 57 s...
