Abstract

The pantropical genus Microstachys A. Juss. is reconsidered, including, among other genera, Elachocroton F. Muell. and Sebastiania sect. Microstachyopsis (Müll. Arg.) Pax as synonyms. It is distinguished from Sebastiania Spreng. A lectotype is chosen for Cnemidostachys Mart. & Zucc., another synonym. New combinations are provided for species from Africa (Microstachys acetosella (Milne-Redh.) Esser, M. dalzielii (Hutch.) Esser, M. faradianensis (Beille) Esser) and South America (M. bidentata (Mart. & Zucc.) Esser, M. ditassoides (Didr.) Esser, M. heterodoxa (Müll. Arg.) Esser, M. nummularifolia (Cordeiro) Esser, M. revoluta (Ule) Esser, M. uleana (Pax & K. Hoffm.) Esser).
