Abstract:

Taxonomic features of Panicum discrepans, previously classified in subg. Agrostoides, sect. Discrepantia of Panicum, are reviewed and compared with other taxa in Paniceae. The new genus Cyphonanthus is proposed on the basis of morphological and molecular characters to include a species distributed from the Caribbean and Mesoamerica to Brazil and Bolivia. Affinities of the new genus with other genera of Paniceae are also discussed.
