image 66(1)6-19.jpg is missing! Re-establishment of Sincoraea (Bromeliaceae)
    Rafael Louzada and Maria Wanderley
Sincoraea was first described with a single rupicolous species (Sincoraea amoena), characterized by leaves totally or partially red during anthesis and the total absence of a peduncle rendering sessile inflorescences. Later, Sincoraea was synonymized under the genus Orthophytum. Many more new species, having the same features as S. amoena, were described under Orthophytum in subsequent years. Herein we re-establish the genus Sincoraea based on morphological analysis and the monophyly of the clade including all species with sessile inflorescences, and the geographic restriction of this group to the northern portion of the Espinhão Mountain Range.
