Abstract:

The genus Peperomia includes 1,500–1,700 accepted species, making it one of the giant genera of angiosperms. The infrageneric classification usually adopted is that of Dahlstedt (1900) which divides Peperomia into 9 subgenera, 7 sections and 4 subsections. In 1930, two of these sections were treated comparably with Dahlstedt's subgenera, making a total of 11 primary subdivisions of Peperomia. Later, different authors added a few more subgenera to include some island species. The names of only a few subgenera, sections or subsections of Peperomia have been typified. In this paper, we present a survey of all subgenera, sections and subsections described in the genus Peperomia and we designate nomenclatural types for names that have not yet been typified.
