Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 6/6/2011)
Notes: The name Chomelia Jacq. (1760) correctly includes several dozen species found in the Neotropics, and is related to Guettarda and Malanea: this is the currently accepted circumscription of this genus. However this is a conserved circumscription, because Linnaeus also published the name Chomelia, in 1758, for some different species of Rubiaceae. Linnaeus's name Chomelia is not an officially rejected name, and those other species are now included in Tarenna.
