Abstract

We review the I I putative species of the neotropical genus Spirotheca and conclude that only five should be treated as distinct taxa. Of these, three have restricted ranges (S. awadendron, S. mahechae, S. michaeli) and two are more widespread (S. rivieri and S. rosea). We provide keys and descriptions of each of these and publish two new combinations (S. rosea and S. rivieri var. passifloroides).
