Abstract

Tumamoca is a small genus of perennial North American cucurbits related to Ibervillea, Ceratosanthes, Doyerea, and Halosicyos (tribe Melothrieae, subtribe Dendrosicyinae). Tumamoca, previously considered monotypic, is now known to have two species, T. macdougalii of the Sonoran Desert and the here described T. mucronata from northern Mexico. Tumamoca, un genero pequeño de Cucurbitáceas Norteamericanas, está mas cerca a Ibervillea, Ceratosanthes, Doyerea, y Halosicyos (tribe Melothrieae, subtribo Dendrosicyinae). Antes de esta revision, Tumamoca estaba monotypica, ahora sabemos que hay dos especies, T. macdougalii del Desierto de Sonora y la especie, nueva, T. mucronata desde Mexico norteño.
