Abstract

Macranthera flammea (Bartr.) Pennell is a rare, biennial species endemic to the pine flatwoods of the lower coastal plain of the southeastern United States. Field, experimental garden, and herbarium studies were used to update the species description. The taxonomic history of the species is reviewed. Recognition of more than one taxon in the genus is not warranted because differences in calyx length and lobing are due to the placement of flower units within the architecture of the inflorescence on individual plants. A map of the species' range is provided. Macranthera flammea (Bartr.) Pennell es una especie rara, bienal endémica de los pinaresde la llanura costera inferior del sudeste de los Estados Unidos. Se hicieron estudios de campo, jardín experimental, y herbario para poner al día la descripción de la especie. Se revisa la historia taxonómica de la especie. No se necesita reconocer más de un taxon en el género ya que las diferencias en la longitud del cáliz y lobulación se deben a la colocación de las unidades florales en la arquitectura de la inflorescencia en los distintos individuos. Se aporta un mapa del área de las especies.
