A new Specklinia (Orchidaceae: Pleurothallidinae) from Costa Rica and Panama
A new species of Specklinia from the Cordillera de Talamanca in southern Costa Rica and western Panama is described and illustrated. Specklinia absurda most closely resembles Specklinia fuegi. It differs from that species ...
Specklinia lugduno-batavae (Pleurothallidinae: Orchidaceae), a new species in the S. digitalis group
Specklinia lugduno-batavae from the Caribbean lowlands of Nicaragua and Costa Rica is formally described and illustrated. The new species belongs to the Specklinia digitalis group and can be recognised by the creeping ...
Phylogenetic reassessment of Specklinia and its allied genera in the pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships within Specklinia (Pleurothallidinae; Orchidaceae) and related genera are re-evaluated using Bayesian analyses of nrITS and chloroplast matK sequence data of a wide sampling of species. ...
Phylogenetic comparative methods improve the selection of characters for generic delimitations in a hyperdiverse Neotropical orchid clade
Taxonomic delimitations are challenging because of the convergent and variable nature of phenotypic traits. This is evident in species-rich lineages, where the ancestral and derived states and their gains and losses are ...
Floral anatomy and evolution of pollination syndromes in Lepanthes and close relatives
Pleurothallidinae is the largest Neotropical orchid subtribe encompassing >5100 species that are mainly dipteran-pollinated. Various pollination syndromes, targeting hump-backed flies (Phoridae), fungal gnats (Sciaridae), ...
The glandulous Specklinia: morphological convergence versus phylogenetic divergence
The present paper focuses on the systematics of the Specklinia glandulosa species complex. Traditionally, S. glandulosa has been considered a widely distributed and variable species, ranging from Mexico to the guiana Shield. ...
