Nicotiana rupicola sp. nov. and Nicotiana knightiana (sect. Paniculatae, Solanaceae), a new endemic and a new record for the flora of Chile Citation: Santilli L, Pérez F, de Schrevel C, Dandois P, Mondaca H, Lavandero N (2022) Nicotiana rupicola sp. nov. and Nicotiana knightiana (sect. Paniculatae, Solanaceae), a new endemic and a new record for th...

A new species of Calceolaria sect. Cheiloncos endemic to central Chile is described. A comparison with the morphologically similar species Calceolaria asperula and Calceolaria petioalaris is made, and a key as well as detailed images to differentiate them is provided. The species is only known from the Natural Sanctuary Cerro El Roble, which is par...
Preprint
Nicotiana knightiana is recorded for the first time for the flora of Chile. A new species of Nicotiana , endemic to the coast of the Coquimbo region is described and illustrated. Molecular analysis placed the new species within the section Paniculatae , as sister to Nicotiana cordifolia, endemic to Juan Fernandez islands. The new species can be con...
Article
Full-text available
A new Schizanthus species from northern Chile is described and illustrated. Schizanthus nutantiflorus was discovered based on recent collections made during unusual rain events in the Atacama Desert in 2015. The new species is distinguished morphologically from other Schizanthus species from northern Chile by its short corolla tube, with a distinct...

Se hace un recuento de las especies nuevas descritas, nativas o endémicas para Chile entre enero de 2020 y agosto 2021. Se identificaron dieciocho nuevos taxones descritos para la flora de Chile, siendo catorce de estas novedades del nivel de especie, tres de variedad y una de subespecie; quince son especies endémicas para el país y tres, nativas q...

Dittrichia graveolens se reporta por primera vez para la flora de Chile y para el Cono Sur. Se provee una breve descripción e imágenes ilustrativas de la especie y su hábitat. Adicionalmente, se presenta un mapa del sitio donde se encontró la población y una clave de las especies de Dittrichia presentes en Chile. Se discute su potencial invasor.
Article

Rayenia, a new monotypic genus assigned here to the Escalloniaceae, is provided with a description of the type species Rayenia malalcurensis, endemic to San Fabián de Alico, Ñuble Region, Central Chile. Molecular phylogenetics and morphological data support its placement in a new genus, separated from its sister taxon Tribeles australis. A detailed...

A new species, Leucheria cantillanensis sp. nov., endemic to the coastal mountain range of Central Chile, is described. By using both nDNA and cpDNA, phylogenetic relationships of the new species were investigated. This new species belongs to the acaulescent/subacaulescent clade of Leucheria, which is congruent with the morphology of the species. A...

A new record of Nardophyllum genistoides from Chile is reported. The habitat differs considerably from the one described in the most recent collection published. This finding gives new insights on the potential habitat of the species and could narrow down future research efforts to this poorly collected species, currently considered as Endangered.
Article
Full-text available
Understanding why some plant lineages move from one climatic region to another is a mayor goal of evolutionary biology. In the southern Andes plant lineages that have migrated along mountain ranges tracking cold-humid climates coexist with lineages that have shifted repeatedly between warm-arid at low elevations and cold habitats at high elevations...

The expansion of cities promotes the replacement of local biotas with exotic species causing a decrease in global diversity. As urbanization continues to expand, efforts directed towards the conservation within urban landscapes could support regional biodiversity conservation. The biogeographic region of central Chile displays a native flora of glo...
