Abstract:

South American Microgyne Less. is resurrected from the synonymy of Microgynella. Microgyne Cass. is a nomen nudum and therefore not validly published. The replacement generic name Microgynella, a homotypic synonym of Microgyne Less., is illegitimate and superfluous. A revision is presented for the two species of Microgyne, one herein described as new. The new species, Microgyne marchesiana , is described from Uruguay and is diagnosed by pinnatifid leaves, whitish pappus, and a thick testa. A neotype is designated for Microgyne trifurcata Less. Detailed descriptions and illustrations are provided for the two species, together with additional data on anatomy.
