Abstract

Campylandra Baker was published in 1875. Subsequently, various authors have either united it with Tupistra Ker Gawler (sometimes recognizing it as a subgenus or section of Tupistra) or maintained it as a separate genus. The present authors regard Campylandra as a separate genus on account of its having filaments only proximally (vs. almost wholly in Tupistra) adnate to the perianth tube, anthers as high as or higher (vs. lower) than the stigma, a shorter style, and a 3-lobed (vs. peltate to mushroom-shaped) stigma; this separation is confirmed by molecular phylogenies. In preparation for the accounts of genera in the Convallariaceae for Flora of China, Volume 24, it is therefore necessary to transfer into Campylandra 12 species hitherto treated under Tupistra, namely: T. annulata H. Li & J. L. Huang, T. chinensis Baker, T. delavayi Franchet, T. emeiensis Z. Y. Zhu, T. ensifolia F. T. Wang & Tang, T. fimbriata Handel-Mazzetti, T. jinshanensis Z. L. Yang & X. G. Luo, T. liangshanensis Z. Y. Zhu, T. lichuanensis Y. K. Yang, J. K. Wu & D. T. Peng, T. longipedunculata F. T. Wang & S. Yun Liang, T. verruculosa Q. H. Chen, and T. yunnanensis F. T. Wang & S. Yun Liang. It is also necessary to transfer two species originally described under a related genus, Rohdea Roth, but later transferred to Tupistra: T. tui (F. T. Wang & Tang) F. T. Wang & S. Yun Liang (R. tui F. T. Wang & Tang) and T. urotepala (Handel-Mazzetti) F. T. Wang & Tang (R. urotepala Handel-Mazzetti). In addition to these transfers, Campylandra ensifolia is lectotypified.
