Abstract:

Guynesomia (Asteraceae: Astereae), a new genus restricted to the western slopes of the Andes mountains in central Chile, is described. Guynesomia is a shrub characterised by raceme-like or panicle-like capitulescences, disciform capitula, alveolate receptacles, pistillate zygomorphic marginal florets with three or four short lobes, and a pappus of two series of subequal scabrid bristles. Diplostephium is the putative closest relative of Guynesomia. The new combination Guynesomia scoparia is based on Nardophyllum scoparium.
