New Taxa and a New Combination in the North American Species of Froelichia (Amaranthaceae)
Abstract:Two new species, one new variety, and a new combination of Froelichia are described from North America. Froelichia xantusii from Baja California Sur is being recognized as a species endemic to southern Baja California and separate from F. interrupta in which it had been previously included. Within F. interrupta two varieties are here recognized, the newly described Froelichia interrupta var. colimensis from southern Nayarit to Oaxaca and the new combination Froelichia interrupta var. alata from the Sonoran Desert. Froelichia latifolia is described from eastern Texas and has been segregated from the widespread F. floridana. A key to the genus in North America is also included.
