Abstract

The type of the Linnaean name Banisteria dichotoma was found to represent a species of stigmaphyllon from northern South America known as S. humboldtianum (DC.) Adr. Juss. The correct name for this species is Stigmaphyllon dichotomum (L.) Griseb. The misapplications of the names B. dichotoma and S. dichotomum are reviewed. A full synonymy and description for S. dichotomum are provided, as well as a key to separate it from four other species of Stigmaphyllon with which it may be confused.
