Comments and Curiosities

In this account, we transfer two accepted taxa that share the same species epithet, Gronophyllum microcarpum Scheff. and Gulubia microcarpa Essig, to the genus Hydriastele. We have maintained the epithet for the former taxon and herein provide a nomen novum for the latter. (W.J. Baker and A.H.B. Loo. 2004)/Palmweb. Editing by edric.
