Verbena and Glandularia are two genera of Verbenaceae closely related by their morphology. In this work, six species of Verbena from southern Brazil, Uruguay and Chile are transferred to Glandularia: G. catharinae, G. corymbosa, G. dusenii, G. gynobasis, G. hatschbachii and G. jordanensis, based on several typical Glandularia features, such as thos...

... O gênero Glandularia J.F. Gmel. (Verbeneae) reúne cerca de 80 espécies distribuídas nas regiões subtropicais e temperadas da América do Sul e América do Norte, estendendo-se desde o sul do Canadá até o norte da Patagônia, com distribuição disjunta (Solbrig 1968;Troncoso 1974;Peralta & Thode 2010). A maioria das espécies atualmente aceita como Glandularia foi descrita como Verbena L. Estes gêneros diferem principalmente por Glandularia possuir o par superior de estames com ou sem apêndice no conectivo, este último sempre ultrapassado pelas tecas; estilete três ou mais vezes o comprimento do ovário; cálice maduro geralmente mais comprido que as clusas, com lacínias coniventes ou contortas; corola hipocrateriforme; infl orescências em monobótrios ou pleiobótrios heterotéticos de uma a três fl orescências; caule com clorênquima cortical em uma banda contínua e número cromossômico igual a 5 e seus múltiplos. ...
... Glandularia J.F. Gmel is a genus of the Verbenaceae family composed of ca. 100 species with a North-South American disjoint distribution (O´Leary and Peralta, 2007;Peralta and Múlgura, 2011). Many of these species, their hybrids and polyploids have great ornamental potential due to their colourful flowers, long flowering period and low water requirements (Imhof et al., 2013;González Roca et al., 2015). ...
... Though, even if not yet recorded, the occurrence of H. velutinus in Misiones is still probable, as it occurs in adjacent localities of Paraguay (where the type specimen was collected), and Brazil (Fig. 2). Similar patterns of distribution are found in a large number of species in other plant groups, whose occurrence in Argentina has also been recently first recorded (PERALTA, 2001;PONCE, 2001;PETER, 2004;CALVIÑO & MARTÍNEZ, 2007;VEGA & DEMATTEIS, 2008). The distributions of these species can be referred as to the Misiones Nucleus, as designed by PRADO & GIBBS (1993) and PENNINGTON & al. (2003), a roughly triangular area whose sides correspond to the Brazilian-Bolivian border in Puerto Suárez-Corumbá, Resistencia-Corrientes in Argentina and the upper Uruguay River valley in Misiones (Argentina) and Santa Catarina (Brazil). ...
... This study is based on the review of specialized literature (Moldenke 1953, Moldenke 1975, O'Leary et al. 2013, Salimena & Múlgura 2015, O'Leary & Thode 2016 analysis of nomenclatural types and protologues, as well as the observation of several specimens deposited at the CESJ, HUEFS, and RB herbaria (acronyms according to Thiers 2020 [continuously updated]) and available at REFLORA (reflora.jbrj.gov.br) and speciesLink (www.splink. org.br). ...
... The genus Junellia, belonging to the Verbenaceae family, is represented by around 40 species distributed from Peru and Bolivia to Argentina and Chile, with mainly Andean-Patagonian distribution demonstrating strong adaptation to adverse environmental conditions (O'Leary et al., 2009(O'Leary et al., , 2011;Peralta et al., 2008). In Chile, 22 species inhabit (Rodríguez et al., 2018), five of which are endemic, distributed mainly in the high Andean areas of the arid regions of the north, a few species in the central Andean mountain range and others in the extreme south (Rodríguez et al., 2018) In the Chilean highlands, they are used medicinally to treat digestive disorders, colds, cough, fever and bladder ailments (Trivelli and Huerta, 2014;Ortiz et al., 2019). ...

... discrete morphological characters and one cytological character were scored based on our experiences working with the group, observations of herbarium specimens and taxonomic literature, including all major treatments of the family and revisions of its genera ( Schauer, 1847 ; Briquet, 1895 ; Troncoso, 1974 ; Atkins, 2004 ; Botta, 1989 ; O'Leary et al., 2007a O'Leary et al., , 2008 O'Leary et al., , 2011 ; O'Leary and Múlgura, 2010 ; Peralta, 2010 ). These 21 characters (Appendix 1) represent habitat and vegetative morphology (characters 1 – 2), infl orescence and fl oral morphology (characters 3 – 13), ovary and fruit morphology (characters 14 – 20), and chromosome number (character 21). ...
