This SOL Seminar Online was presented by Paul Gonzales on How many Salpichroa species there are, and where are they?: A brief review the Andean genus
Abstract. The genus Salpichroa (Solanaceae) currently has 22 species, characterized by a climbing habit, is a distinctive genus and easy to recognize for its cordate leaves and hanging trumpet-shaped flowers. Salpichroa is endemic of America with distribution along the Andes between 1500 and 5100 m elevation from Mexico to Argentina between 30° N and 37° S, with the highest species richness between 7° S and 17° S in Peru. Species inhabit mainly shrubsland, forest, and in rocky vegetation. In this work, the taxonomy and distribution of the genus are reviewed. The most important characters for the differentiation of species are related with floral morphology. In relation to the analysis of distribution patterns, the Andean identity of the genus is confirmed, and it is determined that the greatest diversity of Salpichroa species is found in southern Peru.
