Abstract

Thirteen of the fourteen Malagasy species of Gnidia are transferred to Lasiosiphon following its re-instatement based on systematic studies of the Thymelaeoideae. New combinations are made for five of the species and the new name Lasiosiphon leandrianus Boatwr. & J.C.Manning is provided for Gnidia decaryana Leandri. The generic affinity of Gnidia neglecta remains uncertain.
