Ten species of South American rotenone-yielding plants are discussed in detail, including three new species (Lonchocarpus sylvestris, L. Martynii, and L. utilis), with special reference to native names, distribution, economic importance, and specimens examined. Descriptions and comparisons of foliage are sufficiently complete to permit the identification of sterile material. Notes of use to field workers have been incorporated. The species concerned, for the most part, belongs to the leguminous genus Lonchocarpus, Series Fasciculati.
