Project Name Data (Last Modified On 10/19/2010)
Acceptance : Accepted
Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 9/8/2009)
Generic Distribution: Endemic
Generic Species Diversity and Endemism Status: has been evaluated
No. of species in Fl. Madagasc.: not published
Accepted Published Species: 4 endemic
Estimated Undescribed Species: 1 endemic
Estimated Total Species: 5 endemic
Additional Taxonomic Work: required at species level
Species Level Data Entry: Complete
Notes: Due to confusion between the homonyms Marsdenia grandiflora (Decne.) Choux (a synonym of S. grandiflora) and of M. grandiflora Norman (an African sp), the presence of the genus has been wrongly indicated for Africa in the literature. We follow the draft treatment by Stevens for Fl. Madagasc., who notes that the species are not all clearly delimited. More work is needed and we believe that there is at least one undescribed species.
